Every twist and turn

There is potential for joy in every moment, whatever the situation. The only reason your job is boring, is because you choose to see it as such. The only reason your neighbor is unpleasant, is because you think of him as such.

Accept what is. Find the good in everything that surrounds you. Nothing will ever make you happy, until you decide to be happy. Accept what is, and you have the ability to make it whatever you want. Nothing can make you happy, and yet you can make happiness from anything.

Struggle and strife, laughter and fun, tears and smiles are all part of the same incredibly lavish symphony that is life. The richness of being alive is never conditional. It won’t all be fun, but would you really want it to be? Rejoice in every twist and turn of the path, because that is where the living is.

— Ralph Marston
