In the privacy of your mind

In the privacy of your mind, you constantly talk to yourself. Your inner monologue might seem pointless at times, but the truth is the act of talking to yourself can help you learn and maintain a positive lifelong trajectory. Right now, you have more than enough to be happy. Right now, you have the full capacity to find something small to celebrate. Right now, you have a choice to make.
Don’t make the mistake of waiting on someone or something to come along and make you happy. True happiness comes from within, when you choose not to allow another person or event to control your emotions, and when you choose to focus on what you have, not what you haven’t.
One of the great secrets to happiness is to pay more attention to the beginnings than the endings.
So many people say they want a new life, but then they take the new one they get every morning for granted. Don’t do this. Don’t wait until your life is almost over to realize how great it has been.
A great life begins right now, when you stop wanting a better one.
This moment will never happen again.
Look around.
Cherish your time as you’re living it.
Work towards something, but enjoy the journey of getting from here to there.
Experience each step.
Don’t succumb to a vicious cycle of overbearing productivity that forces you to constantly think about every imaginable time and place except right here, right now. It’s often hard to tell the true value of a moment until it becomes a memory, I know this to well.
Some Day you will likely discover that the small moments you’re living now are really the big ones worth dreaming about.
So learn to appreciate what you have now before time forces you appreciate what you had then.
