I find it funny how we sometimes put happiness, as one researcher put it, “over the optical horizon”. Out of reach and out of grasp, we put it in alignment with things that we’re going to get; not just the car, the house, the T.V, but the relationship, the goal weight, the age, the degree, the job. We hope for these things and end up pushing it farther away. It makes me sad, to think that people are so busy waiting for happiness they don’t realize that they sometimes have exactly what we need. And in anticipation for perfection we sometimes fabricate that ‘when’ to where when it actually comes along its not the perfect image of what we want and ignore the fact that it’s what we need. Living in the moment and embracing now, leads us to realize that, yes, life may not be perfect, but it can be greater than we ever imagined. We’ll never be satisfied with ‘when’ or ‘soon’ until we appreciate ‘this’ and ‘now’. And we might just be able to see how we may have exactly what another person may dream of having. Live is too beautiful to be ignored. 

“He has made everything beautiful in its time. He has also set eternity in the human heart; yet[a] no one can fathom what God has done from beginning to end. 12 I know that there is nothing better for people than to be happy and to do good while they live. 13 That each of them may eat and drink, and find satisfaction in all their toil—this is the gift of God. 14 I know that everything God does will endure forever; nothing can be added to it and nothing taken from it.” {Ecclesiastes 3:11-14}
