I bought this mug originally for a friend, but I couldn't find it when it came time to give it to her and ended up keeping it myself. In case you're interested, this is the whole text:
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 to still be served, a debt to be paid. Then life would begin. At last it dawned on me that these obstacles were my life. This perspective has helped me to see that there is no way to happiness. Happiness is the way. So, treasure every moment that you have. And treasure it more because you shared it with someone special, special enough to spend your time and remember that time waits for no one.
- Alfred D'Souza
I'm trying to keep these words in mind myself, when I'm having a down day and everything seems difficult.
