The Right Time To Be Happy Is Now....Stop Waiting

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.

One of my favourite quotes comes from
Alfred D. Souse. He said, “For a long time it
had seemed to me that life was about to
begin – real life. But there was always
some obstacle in the way, something to be
gotten through first, some unfinished
business, time still to be served, or a debt
to be paid. Then life would begin. 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 your last 1000 naira,
– until you gain 1000 naira,
– until you have kids,
– until your kids leave the 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/home,
– until your car or home is paid off,
– until spring, until summer,
– until fall, until winter,
– until you are off welfare,
– until the first or fifteenth,
– until your song comes on,
– until you’ve had a drink,
– until you’ve sobered up,
– 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.
