Happiness is not a destination. It is a method of life."
Sometimes we find ourselves thinking "I'll be happy when I get married....when my child is old enough to go to school."
The truth is, happiness doesn't arrive as a result of a certain event. It comes when you decide to laugh more, take yourself less seriously, and focus on enjoying your journey instead of reaching your destination.
Make the everyday routine more enjoyable by adding something special to it- put a silly note in your child's lunchbox, do your chores in a whimsical hat- whatever might bring a smile to your face.
Break up your routine. Take a pen and mark a few "fun dates" on your calendar. Make the reservations now-
"To be nobody-but-yourself -- in a world which is doing its best night and day, to make you everybody else--means to fight the hardest battle which any human being can fight; and never stop fighting."
--e. e. cummings, American Poet
'Time is too slow for those who wait,
too swift for those who fear,
too long for those who grieve,
too short for those who rejoice,
but for those who love,
time is eternity.'
--Henry Van Dyke,American Author and Clergyman
