Why must we put our life on hold while we wait for our circumstances to change? The only thing that will stop us from enjoying our life is ourselves. Losing weight will not guarantee a happy life. Finding a better job will not guarantee Job satisfaction. Getting a new car will not make you leap into the air before you drive it every day. Winning the lotto will not bring quality friends into your life or peace.
Our circumstances are just circumstances. Sometimes life is tougher than at other times. I know this to be true. What I have found is that in tough times you find the most amazing friends and joy in life's simple things. In good times I have found adversity that I was unprepared for and amazement that this could happen in a happy time.
How is it possible to feel sad when your long awaited circumstances finally change? Dreams come true but they also bring a lot more to contend with. We all want to be happy. Life isn't a fairy tale. Even fairy tales have sequels! Life is a journey not a destination. Surrounding ourselves with the right people and finding wonder and joy in all circumstances is possible. There will always be someone worse off than you and someone better off than you. Work out what you can do to last in the tough times. Look at the scenery. Pat a rabbit, dog or cat. Look around and see who you can help. Be a friend to someone. Stop waiting for someone to save you. Go to Wet and Wild in Queensland and you will be amazed at people who know how to have fun. All shapes and sizes. Seriously don't miss out on life waiting for perfection. Enjoy your body and let your body be part of the experience. Don't miss out!
