Enjoy life itself

The simple, common things in life can be just as enjoyable as the big, impressive things. When you make the choice to enjoy life itself, you’ll find yourself being lifted up by anything and everything.

Enjoy life itself, with all the ups and downs, and you won’t waste your precious time worrying about what’s coming next. Relish the experience of life itself, and every day will be filled with opportunities for true joy.

It’s great to have big, wonderful, meaningful dreams and ambitions. But you don’t want to postpone your enjoyment of life until after those dreams are realized.

Instead, find joy in the everyday process of bringing your dreams about. Find your joy in the everyday moments of life itself.

You don’t have to wish or beg or hope or struggle for more. You already have life itself, and the more of it you live, the more of its goodness you have.

Rather than putting conditions and judgments on your experiences, simply enjoy life itself. And in that joy, you’ll find life getting better and better.

— Ralph Marston
