Be Happy Right Now

Do you spend more time worrying about what might happen next than fully experiencing what is happening now? You’re not alone. Thinking about the future can be a good thing, helping us plan, save, navigate and set ourselves up for joy. But when all of our energy goes into fretting about what might happen, because we’ve been disappointed or hurt or injured or surprised, we rob ourselves of the experience of lovely moments in the present. It is possible to be deeply hurt and still take in the beauty of a cloudless day. That’s the human capacity for joy. We can mourn loved ones and still take in the love of those still with us and even enjoy the memories of the love of those we’ve lost. We can experience setbacks and still be pleasantly surprised by the comfort in a cup of tea. What if “other shoe” never drops and you look back on your life realizing you spent the majority of your energy waiting? That would be a tragedy. Please don’t let the happiness of now be taken away by the fear of the maybe.
