Every luxury must be paid for, and everything is a luxury, starting with being in this world.

Beyond your blessings

Have you stopped to think on this day what a privilege it is to be living it? Though today is far from perfect, it is also filled with far more possibilities than you could ever imagine.

In the midst of a difficult problem, have you ever thought to be thankful for it? By doing so, you can begin to change that problem from a negative to a positive force.

When fear has taken hold of you, do you pause for a moment to be thankful for that fear? Remember, the fear is there to prepare you and not to hold you back.

If you’re feeling anxious and frustrated, can you find a way to be thankful? It can focus the energy of that frustration in a positive and productive direction.

Beyond your many blessings, there is so much more for which to be thankful. Be thankful for it all, whatever it may be.

Be thankful for it all. And beyond your many blessings, will be many, many more.

— Ralph Marston
