I love this quote because it is a reminder that happiness and joy is a choice and not an attainment. When we make happiness or joy dependent on some distant goal, we never find our bliss, because it remains perpetually in the future.
The Law of Attraction states we must be what we hope to attract. It works in the present. If you want to attract more opportunities that make you joyful, focus on being happy "now". What we feel and think now is what creates our tomorrow's. If you spend your life focused on the future or living in the past, you are not making use of the present and therefore are not manifesting effectively.
Focus on joy now. Happiness is the one universal thing we all seek. Too often we put our expectations on others, or on things outside of ourselves to "provide" or "bring" happiness.
Have you ever said to yourself "If only I had _________, I'd be happy" or "I'd be happy IF _______" well, that may be precisely why those things (and happiness) never showed up, because you put a condition on them that was dependent on some future event. We tend to focus on joy all wrong - we need to be fulfilled to find the circumstances and people that also fulfill and uplift us.
Be happy, choose it - and the things and circumstances and people that will help uplift you and keep you in that higher vibrational state will follow.Remember that "Don't Worry, Be Happy" song :) I love that song, no matter what happens there is always something to be thankful for and happy about. Even in our darkest hours, when we seek we can find something that has blessed us.
Be Happy - Stay Happy.
