Too often I find myself saying “tomorrow will be better.” This is a slightly optimistic way of looking at things; however, it settles with the circumstances of now.
Why not be happy now? Happiness is a simple feeling I complicate a lot. I should realize that if I want to be happy I can. No matter what is going on in my life, I should be able to find joy in the little things. That fact that I’m even alive is something to cherish. My family, my friends, my education, my economic standing, countless things I could list off.
It is so important to just be happy where I am with what I have instead of wishing for better. It is important to have goals and ambitions, but I have to remember that this is where I am now.I shouldn’t eclipse my now with visions of my future, or past for that matter.
