For you reading this, I encourage you to imagine you are retired now. What is the life you want to live? What is your definition of true bliss? What is a dream reality to you?
Then, think about how you can create that life right now, right now in this moment, rather than defer that life to some distant future.
Because you don’t live in the future. You live in the now. If you’re not completely happy today, in this present moment, then when are you ever going to be happy? Happiness starts in the now. If you want to live a happy life, you have to make happiness a present reality. Then, build on your present to create a greater future.
I’m done putting off my present in pursuit of a supposed better future. I invite you to do the same as me too—to live in the present, make happiness a present reality, then use that to create a marvelous life path as you move forward, rather than defer the current reality for the future.
I’ll end off with this quote by Confucious:
“Life is really simple, but we insist on making it complicated.” ~ Confucious
Here’s to living a great and fulfilling life for all of us!
