Do not believe that possibly you can escape the reward of your action.

Enjoy now

You live in the present, not in the future. So when your enjoyment of life is based only on getting more, it is always waiting for you in the future, and you’ll never experience it.

It doesn’t have to be that way. You don’t have to base your enjoyment on getting more.

There is plenty of life, right here and now, for you to enjoy. In this moment is everything you need to fully and completely enjoy the wonder and beauty of being alive.

It is great when you aspire and work toward bigger and better things in your life. For that adds positive value to the whole world.

And yet, there is never any need to put off your happiness, enjoyment and fulfillment until later, until some specific condition is met. Now is the moment you’re in and now is your moment to enjoy.

So stop perpetuating the deception in your own mind that you don’t have enough, for in this very moment you have plenty. Choose to enjoy life fully, right now, for that is the surest way to make it great.

— Ralph Marston
