Your life is right now! It's not later! It's not in that time of retirement. It's not when the lover gets here. It's not when you've moved into the new house. It's not when you get the better job. Your life is right now. It will always be right now. You might as well decide to start enjoying your life right now because it's not ever going to get better than right now - until it gets better right now!
Stop waiting for the weekend, the annual vacation, or until you get that big break with more money in the bank, to do what you want to do. These are simply excuses.
You can't put life on hold, the world will keep on spinning with or without you. This isn't about not having something to look forward to, it's about postponing everything. You are concentrating on not getting what you what, your thoughts are constantly in the future, thus giving the situation negative attention. You are creating more of the same. By waiting until the time is right to have the life you desire, you are wishing your life away.
The only time you have is right now. There is nothing else.... tomorrow may never come. This is the time you are living, right now, where you are. Dedicate this time to the things that are important to you, your family, friends and your health. Get involved in your own life, while it is actually taking place.
Happiness is achieved when you stop waiting for it and make the most of the moment you're in now.
“The purpose of life is to live it, to taste experience to the utmost, to reach out eagerly and without fear for newer and richer experience.”
- Eleanor Roosevelt
