We have all heard the question, “Which came first, the chicken or the egg?” Does it really matter? It may not when we are talking about chickens and eggs, but it could matter when we are talking about happiness and events.
We have all said this at one time or another, “I’ll be happy when _________________.” Fill in the blank with what fits for you: I get a new job, get a new car, get a new wardrobe, buy that purse, get a promotion, move to a new house, get married, have a baby, lose weight, go on vacation, etc. You get the idea. When we anticipate that a future event will make us happy, does that prevent us from being happy today, right now in this moment?
Could you be happy regardless of your circumstances and lack of desires? Might being happy now allow you to gravitate towards the things you desire by seeing and taking advantage of opportunities that present themselves? It could be that happiness is the way.
May you find happiness where you are today.
Love, Health & Happiness,
