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’ii 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 the 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, or 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. 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… ad 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 lose 10 pounds

  until you gain ten pounds

√  until you finish school

  until you get a divorce

√  until you get married

  until you have kids

√  until you retire

  until summer

√  until spring

  until winter

√  until fall

  until you die

There is no better time than right now to be happy.

Remember: Happiness is a journey, not a destination. (Read: awesome quotes from Revolution 2020 by Chetan BhaGAT)
