When you come to a fork in the road, take it.

Enjoy this day

Whatever you’re doing, you’ll be more effective at it when you enjoy yourself and the world around you. Who would you rather deal with -- someone who has a genuine desire to spread joy, or someone who moans and complains all the time?

There are plenty of reasons to be angry or depressed, but what will it get you? Better to stand up straight, look up, smile, then go forward with confidence and joy. You’ll see beauty all around you, and you’ll find golden opportunities in the most unlikely places.

Whatever you want to have, or do, or be, the first step is gratitude. Be appreciative of what you already have. When you focus on abundance and joy, they will grow in your life.

— Ralph Marston
