Magnificent garden

Instead of looking for reasons to complain, look for ways to be joyful. When you’re not sure what to do, take a long, deep breath and smile a delightful, sincere smile.

Put a little beauty in your thoughts and you’ll see much beauty in your world. Think again and again of all that you have to be thankful for.

Peacefully accept what is, and transform it into the best of what can be. Remember that nothing ends up being the way it first seems, because it is all influenced by your own perspective and your own actions.

Enjoy the unexpected twists and turns in your life’s adventure. Treasure the experience, the learning, the love and the richness of every little thing.

Make life great by appreciating how great it is. Give each day value by making positive, purposeful use of it.

Small, fragile sprouts of beauty, wonder and abundance spring up in every moment. Love them, nurture them and let them grow into a magnificent garden of your very own design.

— Ralph Marston
