The choice to enjoy

This day is unique in all of history, and you are here to live it. Enjoy every moment.

Stop looking for reasons to complain or worry, and start seeing the possibilities that are everywhere. Make the choice to enjoy who you are, where you are, as you are, and the best of those possibilities will open up to you.

Instead of looking for reasons to judge, look for things to enjoy. Decide to focus on the beauty that exists in every moment, in every place.

You already know how much more effective you are when you’re enjoying yourself. So it makes perfect sense to make the choice, right now, to enjoy.

Yes, there are all sorts of tragedies and injustices, inconveniences and frustrations in this world. Yet the most effective way to make the world a better place is to be a better you, and that comes from truly enjoying yourself.

Make the choice to enjoy your experience of life on this day. And you’ll be making the choice to significantly improve all of life with your attitude and your efforts.

— Ralph Marston
