Happiness Is a Journey, Not a Destination

by Conscious Reminder

We expect our lives to get better when we turn 18, when we get married, when we get a better job, when we have a child…

Then we feel tired, because our children are growing up, and we think that when they they are a bit older, we will be happy.

When they become more independent,puberty kicks in and we start complain about how hard it is to put up with teenagers, but when this stage passes, it will be easier.

Then we say that our life will be better when we finally buy a bigger apartment and a better car, when we can afford to go on vacation or, even, to retire.

Truth is, there won’t ever be a perfect moment to be happy. If not now, when? It seems that living in the present is the best way to live! On your journey, there will always be that, one problem, one unfinished business, one unpaid debt to be solved urgently; and then life will begin.

And if we look better, we see that these problems are infinite. They are what life consists of. They help us to see that there is no way to happiness; happiness is the way.

We should appreciate every moment, especially when we share it with our dear ones, and to remember that time doesn’t stand still.

Do not wait to finish school or start college, to lose five pounds, to get kids, to go to school, marry, divorce; do not wait for the New Year, spring, fall or winter, next Friday, Saturday or Sunday or the moment when you die, to be happy.

Happiness is a journey, not a destination. Work like you don’t need money, love it as if nobody ever hurt you, dance like no one can see you.
