The world does not pay for what a person knows. But it pays for what a person does with what he knows.

Filled with gratitude

Whatever this day may hold, you can quickly and profoundly make it even better simply by rejoicing that it is here. Be genuinely and jubilantly in awe of your good fortune at being a part of this day.

The problems are problems only when you remain on their level. Rise above them and suddenly you see the way beyond them.

This is a great and wonderful day that is filled with positive possibilities. When your heart is filled with gratitude, the best of those possibilities become abundantly clear. The sincere appreciation for what you have gives value to all that you are. The blessings you enjoy are blessings precisely because you see them as such.

Consider what a real and astounding joy it is to be who you are and where you are on this day. The more you appreciate it, the more you give it, the better it will continue to become.

— Ralph Marston
