Be Happy Now

If you aren't happy now you probably won't be happy when you have:

An agent
A book deal
A bestselling book
A movie based on your book
A theme park based on your movie
Millions of dollars
Etc.

That is all.

Natalie, did you think this up yourself? It's priceless! Really! And so, so true. Be happy...now. :) I dare you!

Best post ever! And widely applicable beyond the writing world :-)

Stephanie Thornton said...

I agree with Adam--this applies beyond the writing-sphere. Even when life gets rough, there are still plenty of things to be happy about.

Have a happy week!

Thanks a lot, Natalie. Now I have "Don't Worry, Be Happy" stuck in my head.

Here's a little song I wrote...

You are too wise for words, Natalie!! :-)

So true! Sometimes we get less happy when we have those things. Thanks for the reminder.

I'm happy now and I don't have #1 but I do have #2. :)

Wise wise words.
