We convince ourselves
that life will be better after
we get married, have a baby, then
another. Then we are frustrated that
the kids aren't old enough and we'll be
more content when they are. After
that, we're frustrated that we have
teenagers to deal with. We will
certainly be happy when they are out of
that stage. We tell ourselves that our
lives will be complete when our spouse
gets his or her act together, when we
get a nicer car, buy a house,
when we are able to go
on a nice vacation or when we retire.
The truth is there's no better time to
be happy than right now.
If not now, when?
Our lives will always be filled
with challenges. It's best
to admit this to ourselves and decide to
be happy anyway . Happiness is the way.
So, treasure every moment that you
have and treasure it more because you
shared it with someone special enough
to spend your time with ....
and remember that time waits for no one.
So, stop waiting ...
Until your car or home is paid off.
Until you get a new car or home.
Until your kids leave the house.
Until you go back to school.
Until you finish school.
Until you lose 10 lbs.
Until you gain 10 lbs.
Until you get married.
Until you get a divorce.
Until you have kids.
Until you retire.
Until you die.
There is no better time
than right now to be happy.
Happiness, like Life,
is a journey, not a destination.
work like you don't need money,
love like you've never been hurt,
and, dance like no one's watching.
