Maybe you think you’ll be entitled to more happiness later by forgoing all of it now, but it doesn’t work that way.
Happiness takes as much practice as unhappiness does. It’s by living that you live more. By waiting you wait more. Every waiting day makes your life a little less. Every lonely day makes you a little smaller.
Every day you put off your life makes you less capable of living it. -Ann Brashares,
Why is it that we so often wait for happiness, thinking it will skip through our door at some future time? Maybe after we’ve graduated, or after we have a job, or after we’re married, or after we have children, or after we retire. In reality, isn’t some measure of happiness almost always at our fingertips? Don’t we only need to grasp it?
What brings you happiness today?
