Happiness can be an everyday experience. Yet some wait till they retire to be happy. Others until they find love. When they get the car they want. When they graduate. Have the dream job...make more money...have kids...etc ... Happiness isn't attached to the external but rather the internal. We all experience the above but then you come to the self realization that happiness is an inside job. It's a decision you make and then your personal obligation to stay happy and not wait for an external event to enjoy your life NOW.
