I’ll be happy WHEN…
…and when will that be?
If you are not happy now then…why?
Every day is a journey, and the journey itself is home.
If you keep putting off being happy, then what will your journey be like for when you get there? We all need to strive for something because we are human…if we don’t have a reason to get up in the mornings then we tend to drift, try stuff that takes us nowhere as well as crush our self worth!
We are at our very best, and we are happiest, when we are fully engaged in work we enjoy on the journey towards the goal we’ve established for ourselves. It gives meaning to our time off and comfort to our sleep. It makes everything else in life so wonderful, so worthwhile.~Earl Nightingale
So while your on your travels to achieve whatever it is that you desire why not do it in a way that makes you happy getting there! It will make the process so much more pleasurable. You will also see the world for all of its glory, color, richness and opportunity.
Success is a journey, not a destination. The doing is often more important than the outcome.~Arthur Ashe
My suggestion…have a bucket list handy. Write down all the things you want to Do Have and Become. As opportunity arises for you to complete an activity on your bucket list – DO IT! then mark it off.
If you are doing things that make you feel happy and give you joy on your journey, the destination will be that much richer as accomplishment will mean that you have succeeded in many areas of your life. You will also be enjoying your journey with friends and family, and you will soon start to recognize that happiness along the way is more enjoyable and fulfilling than being at the destination or attaining ‘that achievement’.
So when will you be happy? Now is as good a time as any! Stop wasting time expecting to be happy when…Be happy now so you are over the moon with joy when you accomplish!
Have a great day, be happy and if you’re on Facebook or Twitter pop on to my page I would love to see you there or if you have a great idea for your Bucket List please let me know I would love to hear your brilliant ideas!

Such a great post! I always remember reading something about this subject many years ago and it was along the same lines. There was a person in this story and she kept saying, “I’ll be happy when … ” and one of the things she listed off was “I’ll be happy when I move to … ”
I can’t remember where it was she wanted to move to but the response she got back was something to the effect of … “well the only problem with that is that you’ll still be the miserable person there, that you are here!”
That’s when it really struck me that happiness is an inside job. It’s not a new location, or a new house, or a new job … it’s an INSIDE job.
I love this post and this really resonated with me that everyday is a journey and the journey itself is home. Nowhere to go or be but do what brings you joy in each moment. The preciousness of NOW is incredible.
It’s wonderful when you get that feeling that clicks inside and the realization kicks in and inspires you for more! Thanks for stopping by Le Chau
I love your post on this because it’s so resonates with me that everyday is a journey and the journey itself is home. Nowhere to go but to just be in the present moment and do what brings you joy.
Being in the moment is the key! My daughter teaches me a lot about being in the moment! 🙂
