Cheerfully do

Don’t be resentful of your responsibilities. Instead, be thankful for your abilities.

Don’t feel burdened by your obligations. Instead, feel the freedom and possibilities in the opportunities you have to make a difference.

Life can often be serious, complicated and demanding. It’s not all fun and games.

Yet every day, no matter what it holds, is a chance for real fulfillment. Every situation is a situation to which you can bring positive meaning and purpose.

If you get hung up on fighting against what you have to do, you can miss out on some of the most valuable and enriching things you’re able to do. If you waste a lot of energy on resentment, you have that much less energy available to create achievement.

Cheerfully do what there is for you to do, then step up and do even more. Life is yours to be lived, so give your life the richness you deserve.

— Ralph Marston
