Never Procrastinate Your Own Happiness
You are in control of your own happiness. I have said that many times in many different blog posts. However many of us seem to put happiness off until something else happens. Procrastination is what we do when we don't want to do the thing we should do. So we find other things to do or excuses why we cannot do the main thing
If you ever hear yourself uttering phrases like "I will go back to school when...", "I will get a new job when...", "I will leave him/her when...", "I won't be happy until..." Well those are all procrastinating doing something that will make you happier. Why are you putting conditions on your own personal happiness? Why do you have to wait for something to happen in order for you to do what it takes to make you happy?
The answer is that you do not and should not put off happiness. Time is something that is valuable but also something that is not guaranteed So while you are waiting for the right time to be happy you may never get that chance. If there is something that you want to do then you need to step up and DO IT. You make the choices that make YOUR history. Life is meant to be lived fully and with joy. So never stop yourself from being happy because you can do whatever you want to and dream of.
I urge you to look at your life and find the excuses you have given to yourself and others that are preventing you from doing and being who you want. You are the only one who can remove those roadblocks and travel down the path to your life filled with happiness. You are the only one who can live your life!
