We convince ourselves that life will be better after we get married or have a baby … Then we are frustrated that the kids aren’t old enough and we’ll be more content when they are. Thereafter, 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 husband gets his act together, when we get a nicer car, 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, then when?
Your life will always be filled with challenges. It’s best to admit this to yourself and decide to be happy anyway. Happiness is the way all the way.
So, treasure every moment that you have … and remember that time waits for no one. So, stop waiting…
until you finish school
until you lose 10 kgs.
until you gain 10 kgs.
until you get married
until you have kids
until you get a new car or home
until your car or home is paid off
until your kids leave the house
until you retire
until you fall
until you die
There is no better time to be happy than right now.
Happiness is a journey, not a destination.
So … work like you don’t need money, and love like you’ve never been hurt.
