We will be happy once we get that job or that house or when we find that right person. However we can make a choice to be happy where we are now because getting some of those things may not be the right thing for us and realize it once we are there. Thinking the grass is always greener somewhere else seems to be part of the human condition and repairing dissatisfactions with ourselves are sometimes coupled with the attainment of something we currently lack.

The reality is that we have all the tools at our disposal and provided we are healthy of mind and body, we can choose to be satisfied where we are right now. Enjoying the journey rather than looking ahead to some destination that may in the end not suit us is probably preferable and is truly living in the moment.

I am learning to do that more and as I begin my 60th year I hope to get really good at it.
