Joyful world

Put some real joy into what you’re doing, and what you’re doing changes for the better. Put some genuine joy into the situation, and new, positive possibilities come clearly into focus.

Instead of assuming that you cannot possibly enjoy what you’re doing, find ways to add your own joy to it. Instead of expecting joy to be given to you, make as much of your own joy as you can.

Energize your moments by living them joyfully and enthusiastically. You can choose the way you relate to life, so choose to do it with joy.

Don’t poison your attitude by compiling a list of things that get you down. Commit yourself to lifting life up no matter what kinds of things might be going on.

By all means, live in the real world, and live with authentic joy. Be realistic and joyful at the same time, and your reality will get better and better.

This is a day, this is a moment, this is a life that could benefit from some real joy. Give some joy now, and as often as you can, and live in a more joyful world.

— Ralph Marston
