Make room

How can your life be filled with joy if that joy has no room to reside in you? How can your days be filled with happiness if that happiness is squeezed out by other concerns?

Make room for joy and it will come. Make room for happiness and it will be there.

Cast out the anger and spite. Let go of the worry and anxiety. Let the envy and resentment dissolve into nothing. Leave the dismay and discouragement behind.

Clean out the old, negative patterns of thought. Make room for plenty of love, plenty of joy, happiness and fulfillment.

Get rid of the mental junk you never really wanted, and certainly do not need now. Make some room to truly live.

— Ralph Marston
