Choose joy

Joy does not demand anything of you, and it gives you so very much. Allow it now, and let it pull you forward.

Joy does not ask you to be naive or unreasonable or to ignore the reality around you. It simply offers to shine a positive, empowering light on that reality.

Joy does not take anything from you, and requires no special conditions or obligations. Let joy flow out from you, and see how it lifts everything it touches.

Joy is a gift that keeps on giving. Welcome it with open arms and a grateful heart.

Joy opens your eyes to a whole new world of possibilities. Joy connects you to people, places, things and situations that can bring to life great value.

Joy is yours when you choose it. Choose to let joy flavor this day, and experience the positive power of joy in every moment.

— Ralph Marston
