We are made to persist. That's how we find out who we are.
-- Tobias Wolff

When you truly pay attention and are fully aware, you are never bored and life is never tedious. You are continually immersed in a wondrous universe of limitless proportions, and it is always good to be mindful of that.

Be mindful, and see the possibilities in every moment and in every situation. Be mindful, and take positive, meaningful and beneficial control of every aspect of your life.

Instead of living on autopilot, instead of living from your assumptions, live from your best intentions. Instead of letting the illusions get you down, grab the immense positive reality of life and lift yourself higher and higher with it.

Give your complete and loving attention to whatever you’re doing, without judgments or preconceptions. Connect with the astounding beauty and possibility of what is, and discover new joy in every situation.

Don’t waste the power of your magnificent mind by filling it with worry, anger or resentment. Use that awesome power to appreciate life’s special goodness and to make much more of it for yourself and others.

When you think, when you see, when you speak, when you listen, when you act, pay attention. Be fully mindful, and be fully alive.

— Ralph Marston
