As soon as we wish to be happier, we are no longer happy.

As soon as we wish to be happier, we are no longer happy.  – Walter Landor

 

Life is about balance.  One area that is a personal challenge for me is the balance between my growth mindset and my appreciation for the present.  There are times I want to be content – just for a moment.  There are times I want to celebrate the now without looking ahead to how I can be better.  As soon as we achieve success, I tend to already be focusing on the “what’s next.”

 

For me, an area of improvement is to live in the moment.  I lean on those around me – on family and friends – to slow me down.  I have a strong support system to lend balance to my life.  Part of my need to Press Pause is in my happiness equation . . . the ability to enjoy the present without losing my vision for the future.  We all need people in our lives to make us better . . . life isn’t a solo journey.  Life is about relationships, clarity, and support.
