If Your Happiness is Contingent on a Future Event – You’re Screwed!

I spent the majority of my life thinking that when I achieved this or that, or procured this or that – or her, I would feel different – better, finally fulfilled.  I was wrong.  I was literally wasting my life.  There is no pot of gold waiting over the rainbow.  It’s best to recognize the pot of gold that’s dangling from your hand.  Want what you already have.  Enjoy life now.  And remember, like my father always said – it doesn’t get any better than this – so get your perspective straight this very moment.
