Savor life

As you do what you do, whatever it may be, enjoy the moment you’re in. Whether the day is bright or gloomy, whether your surroundings are comfortable or coarse, there is always something to savor.

Rather than worrying too much about what is next, pay more attention to what is, here and now. Instead of agonizing too much about what you can’t change, marvel at the possibilities of what you can do.

There is beauty and wonder in every direction, if you’ll simply take the opportunity to see it. Every day, every situation, every person you encounter brings something that will add richness to life.

Each moment holds the prospect of a new experience. Eagerly drink in all of those experiences, for in them you will find the fertile substance of life.

The more earnestly you savor life, the more you will find to savor. In the spectacular times and in the ordinary moments, there is always plenty to add to the priceless treasure of experience.

Savor life as quickly as it comes. And experience for yourself its overwhelming abundance.

— Ralph Marston
