The beauty of this day

This is a beautiful day, a priceless gift never to be matched, filled with unique and wonderful possibilities. This is a beautiful day, and you can make it even more so simply by experiencing it.

Today’s beauty may not be obvious at first. After all, the problems and injustices have a way of demanding your attention.

But they do not have to blind you to the beauty of this day. No matter how loudly the difficulties may shout, the beauty and positive possibilities are always there.

The beauty of this day has no need to shout or scream. For the more peaceful your spirit becomes, the more fully you will know and experience the beauty.

Many things, fortunate and unfortunate, will happen today in this busy, complicated world. And the beauty of this day remains a steadfast reality enveloping it all.

For the beauty of this day does not happen, and needs no push or promotion. It is always, and it is yours.

— Ralph Marston
