  • 1. BE HAPPY NOW* We convince ourselves that life will be better after we get married,have a baby, then another. Then were frustrated that the kids arentold enough and well be more content when they are. After that, werefrustrated that we have teenagers to deal with. Well certainly behappy when theyre out of that stage.* We tell ourselves that our life will be complete when our spouse getshis or her act together, when we get a nicer car, are able to go on anice vacation, when we retire. The truth is, theres no better time to behappy than right now. If not now, when?* Your life will always be filled with challenges. Its best to admit thisto yourself and decide to be happy anyway. One of my favorite quotescomes from Alfred D. Souza. He said, "For a long time it had seemedto me that life was about to begin - real life. But there was alwayssome obstacle in the way, something to be gotten through first, someunfinished business, time still to be served, or a debt to be paid. Thenlife would begin. At last it dawned on me that these obstacles were mylife."* This perspective has helped me to see that there is no way tohappiness. Happiness is the way. So, treasure every moment that youhave and treasure it more because you shared it with someone special,special enough to spend your time with... and remember that timewaits for no one.* So, stop waiting ... until you finish school, until you go back toschool, until you lose ten pounds, until you gain ten pounds, until youhave kids, until your kids leave the house, until you start work, untilyou retire, until you get married, until you get divorced, until Fridaynight, until Sunday morning, until you get a new car or home, untilyour car or home is paid off, until spring, until summer, until fall,until winter, until youre off welfare, until the first or fifteenth, untilyour song comes on, until youve had a drink, until youve sobered up,until you die, until youre born again to decide that.There is no better time than right now to behappy!~Author Unknown~
