Good fortune

What a joy and a privilege it is to be alive on this beautiful, one-of-a-kind day. Life is increasingly abundant and the possibilities have no end.

Just to experience it all is amazing. To be able to make a difference is truly a blessing with no equal.

Though it can be easy to feel sorry for yourself, doesn’t that option seem rather silly? After all, just consider the incredibly good things you have going for you on this day, in this life.

Sure, there are some pains and problems. Yet they are easily overwhelmed by the countless opportunities for joy and fulfillment.

Life’s goodness is so common and pervasive that you often don’t even notice it’s there. Choose today to notice it, choose to be thankful for it, and choose to make even more of it.

Celebrate your incredibly good fortune to be here on this day. Joyfully make it the best one yet.

— Ralph Marston
