So Much Easier Said Than Done

i was reading a book and there was a part in it that stayed with me. its about being happy. finding happiness today. don't be blinded by the journey to what you believe is happiness, find something good in every day. i will be re- writing this part when i have the book on me, there is an extract i'd like to put up thats explains what i mean so watch this space. in the mean time be happy today. difficult most of the time i know but you dont want to look back on things wishing you did it so differently, theres no room for regrets in life just choices. when was the last time you drove with no destination in mind? or sat and just listened?

i found the extract:

Random acts of heroic love – Danny Scheinmann   “ “Are you suggesting I abandon my journey?” I asked. “No not at all. The opposite. Hear my story: one day a man sees the sun setting and decides that his fortune lies where the sun touches the land. He sets off towards it. He walks and walks and walks, and after a long time he arrives back in the village where he stared. He has travelled the globe but when his friends ask him to describe the wonders of the world he is unable to reply for his eyes have been blinded by the sun. Now, what I am suggesting is that you remember your journey and forget the arrival. Otherwise you too will be blinded, and you will grow old like me and wonder where your life has gone, and you will realize that you spent all your life planning for a future that never happened. Find your happiness now, and if you happen to find your love you will double it. Come have another vodka with me and listen to the birdsong. Why not live now young man?” ”
