Day 11 of Write31Days:
“For a long time it seemed to me that life was about to begin – real life. But there was always some obstacle in the way. Something to be gotten through first, some unfinished business, time still to be served, a debt to be paid. At last it dawned on me that these obstacles were my life. This perspective has helped me to see there is no way to happiness. Happiness is the way. So treasure every moment you have and remember that time waits for no one. Happiness is a journey, not a destination.” – Souza
Happy second Sunday in October! We are well and truly in the last quarter of the year now. And for this week, I wanted to switch things up a bit. This week’s theme is: magnet quotes by Quotable Cards. I’m obsessed with these magnets and the company. I’d by them all if I had more metallic surfaces to place them. One day I may just have to make one wall of my house a giant magnetic board. That’d be awesome.
But back to the task at hand. For now, I have 7 of my top favorite magnet quotes to share – and if you like them, you can buy them from tons of different retailers. Today’s quote is from probably the first of the quotable magnets I ever bought. It’s so old that the once white background is now a little yellowed.
I love this quote because it helps to remind me that all the annoying blips along the way to my goals and dreams aren’t just speed bumps put there to deliberately annoy me. No, they are part of the process and just as necessary to reaching my goals as all the things that go smoothly. Whenever I start to get pissed off that things aren’t going as planned, I remember that the obstacles are part of life and not there to trip me up.
This again reminds me of a line from P.S. I love you, this time at the beginning of the movie when Gerry and Holly are having a massive fight and she finally tells him she’s afraid that their life isn’t going to start. And Gerry replies, “Baby, we’re already IN our life. It’s already started. This is it. You have to stop waitin’, baby.”
So if you feel like you’re still waiting for life to begin. Take a minute to look around. You may already be in your life.
Have you ever felt like you weren’t living your life? Are you too focused on the destination and not enjoying the journey?
