Take the time to live

Life is so much more than just getting by. Take the time to truly and richly live.

It’s great to observe what happens in the world. It’s infinitely better to play an active, contributing role.

Sure, the easiest and most comfortable thing to do is to stay within the confines of your habitual routine. However, this is a new day and you deserve to get some new adventures out of it.

Your life is unique and precious, so live each moment with that in mind. Fill the day with meaningful substance, and fill the world with your own special joy.

Venture out, jump in, and be a part of this great and fascinating universe in which you find yourself. A very special part of your life, this day, is here right now, so fill it with all the goodness you can, right now.

Remind yourself how good you have it, and of how very much better it can be. On this day, in this place, as you are, with what you have, let go of the fears, worries and doubts, and richly, joyfully live.

— Ralph Marston
