Daince Like No One is Watching
Author Unknown

We convince ourselves that life will be better after we get married.
When we're married, we think things will be better when we have
a baby. Then we are frustrated that the kids aren't old enough for
us to relax but we know 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 we be complete when our spouse gets his
or her act together, when we get a nicer car, are able to go on a
nice vacation, when we retire.

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.

A great quote on this very subject comes from Alfred D. Souza.
He said, "For a long time it seemed to me that life was about to
begin - real life. But there are always some obstacles in the way, something to be gotten through first, some unfinished business, time still to be served, a debit to be paid. Then life would begin.
At last it dawned on me that these obstacles WERE my life."

This perspective has helped me to see that there is no way to
happiness. 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...and remember that time waits for no one.

So stop waiting until you finish school, until you go back to school, until you lose ten pounds, until you gain ten pounds, until you have kids, until your kids leave the house, until you start work, until you retire, until you get married, until you get divorced, until Friday night, until Sunday morning, until you get a new car or home, until your new car or home is paid off, until spring, until summer, until fall, until winter, until you are on welfare, until you are off welfare, until the first or the fifteenth...to decide that there is no better time than right now to be happy.

Happiness is a journey, not a destination.

Thought for your day: Work like you don't need the money.
Love like you've never been hurt.
And dance like no one's watching.
