Be of good cheer

Be of good cheer today, no matter what life hands you. Be of good cheer, because it’s a whole lot more effective than the alternative.

The situation may be challenging, but you don’t have to let it ruin your enjoyment of the moment. Life may have given you disappointment, but you don’t have to perpetuate that disappointment.

The best thing you can do when things go wrong is to think and speak and act as if things will get better. And when you do, more likely than not, things will get better.

A negative situation is not made better by a negative attitude. What will actually do some good is to turn the situation on its head by being positive about it.

Be of good cheer, and see what a difference it can make. Be of good cheer, and add something positive to every place you go.

Be of good cheer, not because you don’t know any better, but because you do. Be of good cheer, and be the difference that turns things around in a positive way.

— Ralph Marston
