Living in the "not now" is a chief cause of unhappiness. The strain of being not present in your own life is simply too great. When you miss out on the present, you miss out on so much. No now; no life. In the English language, the word "present" has three distinct meanings: "here", "now" and "a gift." The more present you are in each moment, the more happiness you will find. Happiness is where you are.
