When Will I Be Happy? -Christina
Have you ever told yourself “I’ll be happy when (fill in the blank here)?” When you have a new partner, get a new job, make more money or lose weight?” Are you waiting for that one moment that will change your whole life and make you happy?
Thinking that your happiness is just around the corner can prevent you from enjoying the current moment you are in. Working and planning for the future are not mutually exclusive to appreciating the moment that you are experiencing right now. You can plan and change while also still appreciating where you are at right now.
Your ability to experience happiness, joy or contentment comes from inside you, not from the circumstances happening around you. Appreciating the moment will not fix all of the things that you want to change, but it can certainly allow you to experience more happiness right now.
Happiness can be right where you are, rather than only where you are going.
