You don’t have to wait until you get the new job, have a new car, find a spouse, have kids and so on to be happy. Happiness is a choice that merely has to be chosen and lived.
Attempting to control your external environment to change the way you feel inside. Imagine your environment not controlling you, but you controlling your environment.
You can only control your thoughts, you find peace with acceptance and changing your mindset.
Your life is yours, your journey is yours alone, and you can’t fail at being yourself. Ask yourself how you are going to become the best version of yourself and how you can make the world a better place.
