Enjoy here and now

The more you enjoy the place where you are, the better that place will be. The more you enjoy the moment you’re in, the more treasures that moment will bring.

Even when you have no reason to enjoy life, enjoy it anyway. For joy is its own best reason.

It does no harm to anyone for you to enjoy who you are and what you’re doing. In fact, your genuine enjoyment can bring joy to many others.

You’re always better at doing the things you enjoy. So enjoy as much as you can.

Don’t let others limit your thinking about what’s enjoyable and what’s not. Enjoyment is a state of mind and of being, not a state of outside affairs.

Enjoy that you’re here to experience all the ups and downs. Your enjoyment will bring the ups more and more often.

— Ralph Marston
