What you do with it

Some days are bright and others are dark. Look closely and you’ll see that each one has a beauty all its own. Some activities are fun and others are a chore. Yet there is value to be found and lived and created in each and every thing you do.

Some people are a joy to be around, and others you’d rather not see. There is something of value, though, that you can learn from each person you encounter.

No one is going to dump the goodness and the treasures of life in your lap. Yet when you take the trouble to look for the truly valuable things in life, you’ll find them in abundance.

This day, this moment, this life is exactly what you decide to make of it. It can be dreary and depressing, or it can be bright and magnificent.

That depends not on how this day comes to you, but on what you do with it.

— Ralph Marston
