Happiness is not a resource-limited phenomenon where we experience scarcity on earth; that is, we cannot consume it, we cannot erase it from the world; Happiness is enough for everyone, even more. So where does this stinginess, frugality, poverty of consciousness come from? Why shouldn’t we be happy today and tomorrow, why should we put off happiness; What if something happens that we didn’t expect while waiting for this “big event” to happen? Are earthquakes, destruction, great pain and loss not enough to make us realize that our time is not as eternal as we thought? For the things we want to do when we wake up one morning What if we find that we don’t have time? If we have nowhere to wear our favorite dress, if we can’t change jobs or homes, if we can’t earn more money, or if our friends with whom we want to go on vacation are no longer with us… Then what will happen? Will we postpone our happiness to a later date?

Because ‘have more timewe say, although this may not be the case. The moment comes and when we say there is more We can actually see how it ends. Even the city we always wanted to visit can disappear… we don’t believe we deserve happiness. Why, why shouldn’t we deserve happiness? We all deserve it, happiness is our most natural right and need. Third reason We are confused about what really makes us happy. Maybe we think we’ll be happy when we have more money, maybe we change the city we live in, and when we get to them, we may not find what we expect; because we don’t understand that what we think will make us happy isn’t actually true.

It can be very difficult for us to find solace to ease the “if only” pain. Do we want it? Imagine…

Instead of postponing life for later, we should strive to do everything that is at our disposal today; don’t regret later no time left not to mourn; We must do what we want before it’s too late. Maybe it’s time to put on the outfit you’ve been saving for special days, go on the vacation you’ve always been putting off, and start the initiative you’ve always wanted to try…

We also don’t need to live on the fringes; We don’t have to be cicadas or ants. As long as we keep striving for tomorrow, we can live without missing out on the present. Maybe “we need to get on this path now” because life cannot be put off.
