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

Work to be done

The more focused effort you put into something, the more valuable you make it. The more time and attention you give to a task or activity, the more rewarding that activity will be.

The process of building and creating is a naturally joyful one. Give of yourself to that process and fully enjoy the experience of making a positive difference.

Decide not to carry around a burdensome resentment for what you have to do. Choose instead to be delightfully thankful for what you are able to achieve.

Today is filled with opportunities to make things happen. Each and every situation is rich with positive possibilities.

The many tasks you undertake can serve to bring you great joy. See them in the positive light of creativity and fulfillment.

Be eager to give your time and the full depth of your attention to the work that is to be done in your world. And whatever that work may be, it will bring many magnificent treasures.

— Ralph Marston
