HAPPINESS IS THE WAY
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 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.
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 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 diced that there is no better time than right now to be happy.
Happiness is a journey, not a destination.
Work like you don't need money
Love like you've never been hurt
And dance like no one's watching.
God has given each of us a gift that we are to use to glorify His Name. Do you know Yours???
Live the Good Life all the days of your life
I've discovered that time serves me as I go calmly about my business. I am relieved as I act to the best of my ability and give no thought to what I did last or what I must do next. Instead my complete attention is on the task at hand. This brings me a deep sense of satisfaction in all that I do.
Time is the gift I've been given. Time to use to be best of my ability.
It's Sunday once again and time for me to have some of that good R and R. Rest and relaxation, refreshment and renewal. Don't wait until you have a sunnier day to spend time with your family and loved ones. Don't wait until you have less to do to take some time off. Our work will always be there, challenges will continue, the house, the job and work will wait, but time doesn't.
Use the time you've been given wisely.
I hope you have a wonderful Sunday filled with some of that great R and R that we all need.
