Pursuit of happiness

Something inspirational:

“Men spend their lives in anticipations, in determining to be vastly happy at some period when they have time. But the present time has one advantage over every other; it is our own. Past opportunities are gone; future has not come. We may lay in a stock of pleasures, as we would lay in a stock of wine; but if we defer the tasting of them too long, we shall find that both are soured by age.”

  1. Great quote! You shouldn’t put off tomorrow what can be done today, because tomorrow may never come; is what my mom always told me.

    1. My mum too! It’s amazing, doesn’t matter where one lives in the world, we all use the same quotes, whether we’re aware of it or not.

  2. Right about at this point, I’m just concerned about life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.

    I’ve never really been happy in my life so I would really like to know what it feels like!

    1. Randy, letting go of anxiety will help you relax and enjoy your life more.

      Unfortunately when we worry about everything we never give ourselves the chance or opportunities to find out what it means to be happy, because we’re worrying about every little thing.

      I believe that to be true for most of us.
