New joy

Joy does not come from the way life is. Joy comes from the way you choose to see, embrace and live life as it is.

Circumstances will change from moment to moment, from day to day. Yet whatever the circumstances may be, you will always have the possibility for joy and fulfillment.

Instead of holding on in vain to the fleeting realities in which you once experienced joy, put new joy into the reality that is now. Every new moment is a new opportunity for joy.

Joy does not last, nor does it end. It comes to life again and again in every new moment.

You must let go of the setting sun in order to experience the joy of the next dawning day. Let go, and let the new joy come into your life.

Give joy now to what is. Give joy, always, and it will always come to be.

— Ralph Marston
