You can be happy right now.

Do you ever feel like you’re waiting for something in life but you don’t know what it is?

You feel like you’re waiting for something to happen?

Some voice that will say "Hey! This is what you’ve been waiting for! This is what will make your life special. This is what will teach you who are and what your potential is."

We all wait for this voice.

We all hope there is this pivotal moment that answers all our questions.

Who am I? What do I stand for? What am I worth?

But guess what? Those thoughts don’t do anything for you.

Those thoughts keep you in limbo. Sitting smack dab between living and waiting.

You keep waiting for answers - waiting for an epiphany of sorts. You hold off on any major life changes while waiting for answers to help guide you.

And then you turn 25 and then 30, 35, 40 and you look back and you’re like Wtf!? Where is this moment I’ve been waiting for? Wasn’t I supposed to know by now?

It’s right here! It’s always been right here. It’s you!

This is your wake up call.

This is a wake up call to stop waiting and to stop wondering.

You have everything you need right now to create something real with your life. You are worthy of fulfillment and happiness right now.

That's what makes your life real. You don’t have to wait to be happy.

Life only really gets started when you decide that happiness isn’t something you have to achieve or find in the future. It’s a mindset. It's determining that you are worthy of happiness right now.

This mindset is the foundation for everything else in life. You can only find your passion, purpose, partner, creativity, when you decide to be happy.

Right here, right now.

Happiness sets you on a path to find everything else. Otherwise you’re always looking, waiting, and hoping. If you keep yourself in a holding pattern, you'll always be waiting for life to become real.

Happiness doesn’t exist where you are not.

It doesn’t exist in the future or the past. It’s not waiting for you around the corner. In some new job. In a new city. With a new boyfriend or girlfriend.

Realize it’s ok to be happy with where you are today. Be hyped about today, even if you aren’t where you want to be in your career, your relationships, your body, your life...whatever.

You don’t have to wait anymore.

Here is a reminder: You’re never in the wrong place. No matter how old you are or what your past looks like, you're in the right place. Right now, right here. You just might be looking at things through the wrong lens.

This is your wake up call.

I’m gonna be happy right now. In a world of people waiting in line for things to happen to them… I choose to be happy.

Life is too short not to choose to be happy.

Live that everyday, and I promise that you’ll have that moment of clarity. That moment that will show you what you’re made of and who you are. Live that everyday and I promise that you’ll live a life of fewer regrets.

Wake up with that mindset. Go to sleep with that mindset.

Look yourself in the mirror and smile with that mindset. Let that mindset emanate from you and have your friends be like wow... "you’ve changed."
