Stop waiting for happiness.
You won’t find it tomorrow, or the next day, or next year. You won’t find it when you finally learn how to be grateful, or when you learn to think positively. You won’t find it after you have completed 1000 days of affirmations or made your next buck.
The only place you can find happiness is now.
Take this moment to enjoy where you are. Stop looking to the future to allow yourself to be happy. Stop telling yourself that if you read my blog or anyone else’s everyday, you will eventually have a paradigm shift and you will finally feel amazing.
Eckhart Tolle says, “realize deeply that the present moment is all you have.” There will never be a moment when it is not now. If you don’t learn how to accept yourself in the now, you will never be happy. The now is all there is. Master happiness in the now, and that is all you will ever need to do.
Are you holding yourself back from doing the things you love because you don’t feel entitled to them yet?
If you’re not going out, scheduling fun into your schedule, or taking a break for a laugh, you’re telling yourself you cannot be happy now. It’s good to be productive. It’s good to grow and improve. But don’t get caught up in the process. Don’t live for the future.
The future will always be just out of reach. There, always, only is the now.
Remember that you already have everything you need.
You don’t have to earn fun. You don’t have to earn happiness. Neither is found in the future, they are found in the now.
So take a deep breath, and let yourself be happy now.
