I'll Be Happy When

Hi Everyone,
I hope you are all doing well. I am doing pretty good. I found this on the Internet and it was
something I needed to hear. I wanted to share it with you. I am looking forward to the long weekend. Scott did well adjusting to the high school. I am spending the day today with Christa and Briana. I am gonna buy Briana some fall clothes. I love shopping for little girls clothes. They have so many nice things now. I hope you all have a good labor day weekend.
I will talk to you soon. Thanks for visiting my blog.
Take Care,
Janet :)
I'll be happy when...
We convince ourselves that life will be better after we get married, have a baby, then another. Then we are frustrated that the kids aren't old enough and we'll be more content when they are. After that, we're frustrated that we have teenagers to deal with. We will certainly be happy when they are out of that stage. We tell ourselves that our life will be complete when our spouse gets his or her act together, when we get a nicer car, when we are able to go on a nice vacation or when we retire. The truth is there's no better time to be happy than right now. If not now, when? Your life will always be filled with challenges. It's best to admit this to yourself and decide to be happy anyway. Happiness is the way. So, treasure every moment that you have and treasure it more because you shared it with someone special, special enough to spend your time with ... and remember that time waits for no one.
So, stop waiting ... Until your car or home is paid off. Until you get a new car or home. Until your kids leave the house. Until you go back to school. Until you finish school. Until you lose 10 lbs. Until you gain 10 lbs. Until you get married. Until summer, Until spring. Until winter, Until fall. Until you get a divorce. Until you have kids. Until you retire and so on. There is no better time than right now to be happy. Happiness is a journey, not a destination.

  1. Hi Janet ~ that is so Taoist.

    If you ever get the chance to read "The Pathless Path" by Osho, (you may have already done so) the same philosophy shines through.

    I've really enjoyed my omnibus edition visit to your blog today, during 2 of our 3 Saturday shows

    God Bless


  2. Hi! I know that happiness is a choice. We can choose to be happy right now (or not), but it's much more fun and loving to choose now! You have a nice blog.
