I think it is human nature for people to think that life has destination. People think, “if only I get that big promotion everything with be great…then I will be happy.” When in reality most people that aren’t happy right now won’t be happy when they get what they want. Often when we reach our “destination” we find a new set of challenges. So we create another goal or destination and say the same thing, “if only I could…… I would be happy”. With this mentality you never really reach the happiness you are looking for. Life is a journey. At each turn and bend of the journey there are new experiences and challenges. Choose to be happy now…in this moment. When you do you will find that no matter what challenge comes you will be in the right frame of mind to handle it.
