this one's for everyone

it's a little sappy but i read it at somebody's cubicle at
work and it's so true... :)

Dance Like No One's Watching

We convince ourselves that life will be better after we get
married, have a baby, then another. Then we are frustrated
that the kids aren't old enough and we'll be more content
when they are. After that we're frustrated that we have
teenagers to deal with. We will certainly be happy when
they are out of that stage. We tell ourselves that our life
will be complete when our spouse gets his or her act
together, when we get a nicer car, are able to go on a nice
vacation, when we retire.
The truth is, there's no better time to be happy than right
now. If not now, when? Your life will always be filled with
challenges. It's best to admit this to yourself and decide
to be happy anyway. One of my favorite quotes comes from
Alfred D Souza. He said, "For a long time it had seemed to
me that life was about to begin - real life. But there was
always some obstacle in the way, something to be gotten
through first, some unfinished business, time still to be
served, a debt to be paid. Then life would begin.

At last it dawned on me that these obstacles were my life.
This perspective has helped me to see that there is no way
to happiness. Happiness is the way. So, reassure every
moment that you have. Treasure it more because you shared
it with someone special, special enough to spend your
time...and remember that time waits for no one...

So stop waiting until you finish school, until you go back
to school, until you lose ten pounds, until you gain ten
pounds, until you have kids, until your kids leave the
house, until you start work, until you retire, until you
get married, until you get divorced, until Friday night,
until Sunday morning, until you get a new car or home,
until your car or home is paid off, until spring, until
summer, until fall, until winter, until you are off
welfare, until the first or fifteenth, until your song
comes on, until you've had a drink, until you've sobered
up, until you die, until you are born again to decide that
there is no better time than right now to be happy...

Happiness is a journey, not a destination.

Thought for the day:
Work like you don't need money,
Love like you've never been hurt,
And dance like no one's watching.


the older i get the more i realize this is true...you can't
see me but i'm dancing like no one's watching :)
