Give goodness to life

Maybe no one will notice the good you do today. Or perhaps thousands, even millions will take note.

Yet what matters is not whether anyone knows about it. What matters is that you do it, that you make a difference, that you add value and substance to life.

It’s easy to get distracted by the trophies and accolades, the drama, intrigue and glittering edifices. But such hollow tokens will not satisfy your deep longing to make a difference.

Today is your opportunity to give goodness to life. You have the time, the skills, the resources, wisdom and desire to be a beneficial influence in the world.

You have the chance to arrive at the end of this day knowing you contributed to it in a positive way. Today you can accrue treasures in your heart that never go away, adding warmth to all your days.

Let love, purpose, kindness and generosity drive you to give goodness to life. And create richness in your world that can never be diminished.

— Ralph Marston
