Richness flowing out

If you cannot fully value and appreciate what you have, you might as well not have it. Life’s richness is valuable precisely to the extent that you make it valuable.

The way to make it valuable is to be thankful. The way to be truly thankful for what you have is to make good and meaningful use of it.

This moment is an opportunity to do just that. This situation, whatever else it may be, is your chance to create new value and richness.

Look at what you have right now, but not as a static scorecard. Look at what you have and see the possibilities for moving forward.

Your highest fulfillment will come not from accumulating possessions. It will come from creating and expressing new value in your own unique way.

Be truly and immensely thankful for this moment and for what’s in it. Then live it in such a way that new richness comes flowing out.

— Ralph Marston
