What Are You Waiting For?

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 life will be complete when our spouse
gets his or her act together, when we get a nicer car, are able to
go on a nice vacation, when we retire.


The truth is, there's no better time to be happy than right now.
If not now, when? Your life will always be filled with challenges.
It's best to admit this to yourself and decide to be happy anyway.
At last it dawned on me that these obstacles were my "life". This perspective has helped me to see that there is no way to happiness. 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... and remember that time waits for no one.
So, stop waiting until you finish school, until you go back to school,
until you lose ten pounds, until you gain ten pounds, until you have
kids, until your kids leave the house, until you start work, until
you retire, until you get married, until Friday night, until Sunday morning, until you get a new car or home, until your car or home is paid off, until spring, until summer, until winter, until you retire, until the first or fifteenth, until your song comes on, until you've had a drink, until you die, until you are born again to decide that there is no better time than right now to be happy.

Happiness is a journey, not a destination. Thought for the day:
Work like you don't need money, Love like you've never been hurt,
And dance like no one's watching.
