We convince ourselves that life will be better when
we are married, have a
baby, then another. Then we are frustrated that the
kids aren't old enough
and we will be more content when they are. After that
that we have teenagers to deal with. We will certainly
be happy when they
are out of that
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 that there is no better time than now
to be happy. 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.
Treasure every moment 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 your house, until you start work,
until you retire, until
you get married, until you get divorced, until Friday
night, until Sunday
morning, until you get a new car or home, until your
new car or home is
paid off, until spring, until fall, until winter,
until summer, until you
are off welfare, until the first or fifteenth, until
your song comes on,
until you have had a drink, until you have sobered up, until
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.
Work like you don't need money!
Love like you have never been hurt!
And dance like no one is watching!
