Value in the living

The value of life is in the living of it. And the living of life is now.

Happiness is not found in some imagined perfect someday. Happiness is ready for you to make it happen, to enjoy and experience it now.

It’s great to have dreams, goals, ambitions, and to work steadily toward them. Yet while you do, remember to enjoy the quiet, beautiful treasures in each ordinary moment.

Let go of any judgments and conditions you’ve placed on joy, and simply allow joy to flow, right now, right here. Every day, every person, every activity, every conversation has value to add to your life.

Don’t put off the living of your life just because conditions are not perfect. Go ahead and experience fully this day’s portion of the amazing journey you’re on.

Fill your heart with gratitude, and open your awareness to the best possibilities. Life is experienced in the living of it, and now is here for you to live.

— Ralph Marston
