you don't need a reason

TO BE HAPPY!

I wanted to pass on this message today, after being asked "why are you so happy all the time"? yesterday and not in a nice way, I figured there is something to be said about happiness, YOU DON'T NEED A REASON TO BE HAPPY! One thing I have learned about people, sadly no likes to see someone happy, WHY?! Happiness is a choice and just because I choose to be happy with all my trails and tribulations that's my prerogative! I don't live in the best neighborhood, I'm up to my eye balls in debt, we are a one car family, I haven't finished my bachelors degree, we tend to live pay check to pay check BUT I've NEVER BEEN HAPPIER, now that is my choice, I have a smile on my face and it's real, I don't put on a show, it's the real deal. I love my life and everyone in it! You have a choice, please read the message below and be inspired, to be happy for no reason other then just being alive, there is no better time then today, Happy Thursday! ♥

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.
UNTIL..
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 you get a divorce.
Until you have kids.
Until you retire.
Until summer..
Until spring.
Until winter.
Until fall.
Until you die.

There is no better time than right now to be happy. Happiness is a journey, not a destination. So work like you don't need the money, love like you've never been hurt and dance like no one's watching.
