Happiness is a journey, not a destination.

This is a quote that I have known of for a while, I am sure you guys do too!! I love it and cling to it when I am feeling sad about being single or struggling like I do with so much. The author is unknown, but the message is timeless!!

We convince ourselves that life will be better after we get married, have a baby, then another. 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.

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 you get a divorce

Until you have kids.

Until you retire.

Until summer..

Until spring.

Until winter.

Until fall.

Until you die.

Happiness is a journey, not a destination.
