You can chain me, you can torture me, you can even destroy this body, but you will never imprison my mind.

Look closely

The more lovingly you look at life, the more value you will find to live. The more fully you appreciate what is now, the more positively you can influence what will be.

Look deeply enough, and you can find the goodness in any situation. The perspective from which you view the world determines what you will see.

With a positive, thankful, life-affirming perspective you’ll see opportunities for growth, achievement, fulfillment and joy. With the best of expectations you’ll enjoy the best of all possible results.

On the surface, today may look just like all the days before. Choose to look beneath the surface, though, and you’ll find countless possibilities in this moment.

Expect to find goodness, beauty, value and opportunity, and you will. Look closely with a loving heart, and life’s true treasures will come clearly into focus.

The full richness of life is here in this moment. Look closely and you will see.
