Smile at life

No matter what else you have or do not have, you have the beautiful experience of life. No matter what may have happened before, or what might come next, you have this moment.

Now is when you can make it count. Now is when you are connected with unbounded opportunities to make a positive difference.

Don’t waste your time complaining about what you lack or worrying about what you might lose. Invest the best of what you have in this moment to create new value.

If you choose to be annoyed or resentful, you’ll only drag yourself down. Instead, challenge yourself to be more positive and effective than you’ve ever been, right now.

Smile at life, even when life has not smiled at you first. Be the first one to initiate goodness, and you’ll be the first one to benefit from that goodness.

You are here, and there is nothing to fear. Count your blessings, and before you’re finished counting you’ll have even more.

— Ralph Marston
