What are You Waiting For?


Really. What are you waiting for?

Godot?

Prince Charming?

Happiness?

Prince Charming and Godot may very well be on their way right now. They might even be in a race to see who can get there first. And they arrive, you'll fling open the door and say, "Welcome. I've been waiting for you. You must be parched. How 'bout some sweet iced tea?"

But happiness is not on its way. So quit waiting. You're wasting your time. It won't arrive with rap-tap on the door.

Here's the thing about happiness: It will never get here, no matter how patiently and persistently you wait; You will never find it, no matter how dedicated your search.

Happiness isn't a visitor and it isn't a destination. It's a choice.

So, what are you waiting for?

Make up your mind.
