"For a long time it 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. At last it dawned on me that these obstacles were my life. This perspective has helped me to see there is no way to happiness. Happiness is the way. So treasure every moment you have and remember that time waits for no one. Happiness is a journey, not a destination."
I have come to realize and accept the above as complete truth. Lately, I've been dwelling on things--things that made me sad and/or unhappy. I've been settling into the same "But if...should have...what about?...etc" thought patterns. But no more.
I am moving on with my life. Because, as Souza says, time waits for no one. I have precious little life left to spend--not nearly enough. I am going to do my best to make the most of it. No more being sad about things that never happened or upset about things that did. I'm done with that. I'm setting out to make the very best and very most of every day. I've always said that the past should never be dwelt in, nor should it dictate the future. And now I'm saying "Amen!" to that and heading into the future to see what it holds for me.
