It's been around awhile, possibly since copyrighted by Max Ehrmann in 1927. My first introduction was by listening to the LP by Les Crane in 1971/72. I still have the album and play it a few times a year on the brand new old Crosley Victrola my son relII gave me a few years back.

Although I didn't write it, this piece is what comes to mind when I hear the word desire. Listening to it helps me refocus and see what is worth desiring in my life and it always lifts my spirit.

Strive to be happy: The object of my desire!

Strive to be happy. It seems like such a simple thing, but can get all complicated and difficult on the day to day.

Nicely reflective. This is my favorite piece of encouragement...I'm fascinated by your new/old Crosley Victrola. I have a ton of vinyl that could use a listen... Nice post!
