Wealth is enjoying what we already have, not getting more of what we think will make us happy.

A day to be thankful

Every day is a day to be thankful. Life is a miracle, and there is no end to the possibilities for joy, fulfillment, meaning and value.

Every day is a day to be thankful, and the more we remember to do so, the more we have for which to be thankful. Life’s blessings multiply when they are fully realized and put to good use.

Be thankful today and every day, not because you’re supposed to be, but because you can. Experience the warm sensation of true gratitude just because it feels so good.

Keep yourself aware of your good fortune, and through that awareness, your good fortune grows. Focus on the good things, and you make them even better.

Remind yourself how good life can be, and suddenly you see new ways to expand that goodness. Your life and your world become what you hold in your thoughts most persistently, so hold all the good things there with your thankfulness for them.

Today is a day to be sincerely and overwhelmingly thankful. Seize that great opportunity now, with all the richness it brings.

— Ralph Marston
