I’ll Be Happy When…

If the daffodils were blooming, I could be happy.

If I were my ideal weight…

If it were a sunny day…

If I had a relaxing vacation…

If my coming-of-age in Spain memoir were published…

If I were vaccinated against Covid-19….

Maybe it’s not the situation, but a decision on my part to choose to grab some glee now?

I realized that I am postponing my enjoyment of life until After My Vaccination. I feel lucky to have an appointment tomorrow. But I notice that meanwhile I’m crabby with my family. What if I am cheerful starting today instead? PS Also, the daffodils are blooming!

Are you waiting to be happy?
