Why do some people look so far into the future for their own happiness? They will say things like – I’ll be happy when I get a boyfriend or when I move house or when I get married or when I have a baby or when I get a particular job. What if those days never arrive? What if plans fall through? Do you sit back and wait to be happy until a certain type of circumstances eventuate? Do you think how unfulfilled your life is until your reach this future goal?
If you have your health, your freedom, your family, a job that allows you to pay your bills, put a roof over your head and food on the table then you have no real excuse not to find happiness in your present day circumstances.
Being happy starts in the present.
