Waiting for happiness

Waiting for happiness

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

ü  until your car or home is paid off

ü  until you get a new car or home

ü  until your kids leave the house

ü  until you go back to school

ü  until you lose 10 pounds

ü  until you gain ten pounds

ü  until you finish school

ü  until you get a divorce

ü  until you get married

ü  until you have kids

ü  until you retire

ü  until summer

ü  until spring

ü  until winter

ü  until fall

ü  until you die

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

Remember: Happiness is a journey, not a destination.

  1. Thats how the world run and work to be the sledge of time and we are minoring the things..there is a quotation ,”happiness is like a butterfly the more you chase it, the nore it elude you but if you turn your attention to other things ,it will come and sit softly on your shoulder.”

  3. I think apathy is ruling me and once again I hope to get well with moron’s world. What do you think?
    Muktiji was asking today @ Surya dai’s wedding party. We missed you yaar!

  4. It’s easier said than done. I agree; all the spiritual writings say it, but I just can’t or don’t seem to know the meaning of it, and am obsessed with loving the waiting game of life.
