Have you ever been hit by a thought or feeling so profound, that it just stops you and sticks with you? Well, there I was, just being in the moment, when it hit me: How many times had I used this same simple phrase, "I WILL BE HAPPY WHEN..."
I do it all the time. I say I'll be happy WHEN my son gets that awesome job, or WHEN he gets a haircut, or WHEN I finish my next book.
My friends tell me they "WILL BE HAPPY WHEN" they get a big part in that movie, the big house or get married.
I have clients who say they "WILL BE HAPPY WHEN" this or that or the other thing happens.
And it's all just one big fat lie...
It's not about WHEN at all. When we dwell in lower emotions like fear, worry, doubt and comparison, we are just stepping on the hose of the good we want and wish for ourselves. The key is to be happy FIRST, then all the health, abundance and romance will come flowing in.
Let me say it again. It's not about WHEN. It's about NOW.
When you begin with gratitude, your happiness will never be contingent on people or things or circumstances.
You'll never be happy WHEN if you're not happy now.
It's not about WHEN and never has been. The time for your happiness is NOW.
Thank you for reading and sharing! And remember always, always, always go where the love is! Namaste.
