#8 You’re happy now!
I’ve spent a good portion of my life saying “I’ll be happy when…” More recently, I’ve learned to focus on trying to be happier at the moment, even if that means acknowledging there are still other goals I want to attain.
The time is now
It is important to remember that there’s a big difference between being happy within yourself and always being in a good mood. It is totally unrealistic to think that you need to be upbeat, on top of the world 24/7. However, what is not unrealistic is the need to put yourself first and do things that make you happy. For example, as mentioned previously in the post, taking up a new hobby or getting rid of negativity in your life, may that be from people or just energies in general.
