Sometimes your joy is the source of your smile, but sometimes your smile can be the source of your joy.

This very day

You are rich today to an extent beyond anything you can imagine. The portion of that richness that you do imagine, and accept, and bring to life, is the richness you will experience in this very day.

You have traveled long and far to get to this moment. Every step you’ve taken has increased the immense treasure of life that is now yours.

The joys and triumphs, the tragedies and disappointments, are all behind you. Now is your opportunity to take the very best from them and carry that value with you as you move forward.

There are more possibilities available to you now than there have ever been. Every accomplishment, every setback, every brilliant move, every mistake has given you a way to grow more capable and experienced.

Now, here you sit at the culmination of it all. And now you know, better than ever before, how to make it all into something truly great.

This very day is, in so many ways, the best day you’ve ever known. And you are here now to fully live its abundant treasures.

— Ralph Marston
