“I’ll be so happy when….” (fill in the blank). You probably filled in the blank with things like: “I finish school. My home is sold. When I buy my home. When I buy my next car. When I pay off all of my debt. When my business takes off. When I lose weight. When I get healthy” And you may have a few others to add here.
Often, people think happiness is cause and effect, that the circumstances create happiness or take happiness away. In reality, happiness is the beginning. Happiness is right now, not someday. Be happy right now and your goals will come to you. You will have joy in your life and in the moment while your goals are coming to you. There is no waiting for joy or waiting for happiness to happen to you. You can choose to be happy right now.
