Be Happy First

Move to the beach whenever

While searching for an image for a quarterly power point presentation at work, I stumbled across the picture you see below: “1. Move to the Beach 2. Don’t worry, be Happy.” Even though it wasn’t what I needed for the presentation, I saved the image because it struck me as odd.

Why would a person delay being happy? Especially in today’s world where delayed gratification is about as rare as a non-partisan political discussion.
