Life will be better when..
What you will get: Reflections on living in the now
“Life will be better when…”
I get a new job.
I get married.
I get a second child.
I finish my exams.
I have my summer holiday.
I get this project finished.
I get a new car.
My internet connection is faster.
I move to a bigger house.
My partner gets a promotion.
And the list goes on and on…
For many people, the list never comes to an end.
So they live their lives with the false belief that things will get better once some challenge is overcome.
But you and I know this is just not true, right?
There will always be challenges….
Things we want to be different.
Relationships that are not perfect.
Finances that could be better.
Children who need to grow up.
Jobs that don’t make us happy.
And it is true that we should all strive to get the most from our lives, always looking to develop and become wiser.
But the reality is…
The only true happiness you will ever find is in the moment of NOW.
Happiness is a journey, not a destination.
And if you notice them, you can find pure joy in the special moments that life gives you.
The fresh smell of your favourite coffee.
The purity of your daughter’s smile.
The laughter you share with your closest friend.
So make sure you don’t live your life allowing the words “life will be better when…” forming your reality.
Otherwise, you are in danger of making the obstacles you think you need to overcome your life.
So today, why not…
Love like you’ve never been hurt?
Laugh until your stomach muscles ache?
Dance like no one is watching you?
And embrace life to the full.
After all, we only get one shot at it, right?
I’m off to enjoy a day full of joyful moments.
How about you?
To your success
