Be happy, now!
I've been thinking about some advice someone gave me awhile ago. I was working full-time to put Ben through school and I just had Mia. It was probably one of the hardest times in my life. I remember talking to my neighbor and saying,"Oh, life will be so much better when Ben graduates." My neighbor who was going to dental school told me that one thing that he has learned over the years is to BE HAPPY NOW.
How many times have I thought, "I'll be happier once my baby sleeps through the night," "I'll be happier when I lose 10 lbs.," "I'll be happier once we get 3 bedrooms," "I'll be happier when I get a house." The list could go on and on.
If we go throughout life waiting for that something to happen, we'll always be miserable. We will always be waiting for happiness to arrive.
This was just a good reminder to me to be happy now, and everyday. Find happiness in everyday moments and you won't be disappointed. I've just been having warm fuzzy moments and wanted to share.
We now return you to your regularly scheduled blog.
Something that made me smile today.
