Dance Like No One’s Watching

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 favorite quotes comes from Alfred
D. Souza. 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 ten pounds, until you
gain ten pounds, 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 or 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.
Thought for the day:

Work like you don’t need money,
Love like you’ve never been hurt,
And dance like no one’s watching.
