So many of us are DYING for things to get BACK TO NORMAL!!! But what is normal anyway?!?! Use this time to consider which parts of normal are worth rushing back to. In stead of questioning WHY this is happening to us, let's determine what we can learn from it.
Many of us assume we need more time, money or success to be happy. However, progress equals happiness, that's because reaching a goal is satisfying but only temporarily. Life is not about achieving the goals, life is about who you become in pursuit of those goals. Often, we already have everything we need to enjoy life—it’s just a question of prioritizing what’s really important. So learn from the past, plan for the future but LIVE in the NOW! Progress is great, but don’t forget that your life is here and now. So, try to enjoy yourself some too, while making your grandiose plans for the future. Start to create the life you desire, but don't forget to enjoy the little things along the way.
