Life may not be the party we hoped for, but while we’re here we should dance.
There are no short cuts. Most things worth doing are difficult.
Expect the best, plan for the worst and prepare to be surprised.
Life is not perfect and it isn’t always going to be the party you want. That doesn’t mean we cannot enjoy life to its fullest. If you are not happy with what you have, you’ll never be happy with what you get.
We can make a conscious choice to be happy. Life is not going to be the party we’d hoped for, but while we are here, we might as dance. Enjoy what you have today, not what you might get tomorrow. It’s not what we have, but how much we enjoy that makes happiness happen.
I try to remember to enjoy what I have because this too will end and I will miss it. So slow down, look around and don’t just go through the motions. Appreciate the moments that seem unimportant or irritating because they too are a part of life and will end and for one reason or another, you will miss it.
When you dance, your purpose is not to get to a certain place on the floor. It’s to enjoy each step along the way.
