Happiness is a Journey...
I read this somewhere and thought I would share it with you!
I'll be happy when...
We convince ourselves that life will be better after we get married, have a baby, then another. Then we are frustrated that the kids are not old enough and we'll be more content when they are.
After that, we are 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 life will be complete…
When our spouse gets his or her act together
When we get a nicer car.
When we can go on a nice vacation or when we retire.
The truth is there is no better time to be happy than right now. If not now, when?
Your life will always be filled with challenges. It is best to admit this to yourself 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, 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 or gain 10 lbs.
Until you get married or divorced.
Until you have kids.
Until you retire.
Until summer, spring, winter or fall.
Until you die.
Until you feel better.
There is no better time than right now to be happy.
Happiness is a journey, not a destination.
So, work like you do not need money…
Love like you have never been hurt...
…and dance like no one's watching.
