Mom asked me to expound on what I meant, so here goes, hopefully I can say it like I think it…

When we wait around for the Isn’t in our life to become an Is, we miss out on a lot of things. I will use my self for an example, there are a lot of things in my life that I would like to be different, but it isn’t my time for that to happen. So instead of wallowing in the fact that there are Isn’ts, I am going on with my life and making discoveries that I would never come across if they were Is-es.

Does that make sense?

I received a card for my graduation with this quote that I think says what I am trying to say in another fashion.

“for a long time it seemed to me that life was about to begin – real life but there was always some obstacle in the way, something to be gotten through first, some unfinished business, time still to be served, a debt to be paid. at last it dawned on me that these obstacles were my life. this perspective has helped me to see there is no way to happiness. happiness is the way. so treasure every moment you have and remember that times waste for no one. happiness is a journey, not a destination.” [souza]
