We convince ourselves that life will be better after reaching age 18, after we get married, after getting a better job, after having a child, after having another...

Then we are frustrated because our children are not old enough, and we think that we will feel happy when they are so. Then we regret because they are teenagers, difficult to treat; We will certainly feel happier when they come out of that stage.

We say that our life will be complete when our (a) husband (a) go you better, when we have a better car or a better House, when we go on vacation, when we are retired.

The truth is that there is no better time than this to be happy. If not now, when?

One of our favorites is Alfred de Souza:

For a long time it seemed to me that life was about to begin, the life of truth. But there was always an obstacle in the way, something to solve first, something unfinished, time per pass, a debt to pay; then life would begin. Until I realized that these obstacles were my life.

This perspective has helped us see that there is no way to happiness: happiness is the way. We must treasure every moment, much more when we shared it with someone special, and remember that time does not wait for no one.

Do not wait until you finish school, back to school, to lose ten pounds, to have children, until the children go to school, get married, until they divorce, until Friday night, until Sunday morning, until the spring, summer, autumn or winter, or until I die, to learn that there is no better time than this to be happy. Happiness is a journey, not a destination.

It works as if you don't need money, love like you never been hurt and dance as if no one were watching you.
