You cannot make yourself feel something you do not feel, but you can make yourself do right in spite of your feelings.

Missed opportunities

There is no limit to the number of ways you can experience joy. So there is no reason to ever stay disappointed about missed opportunities for joy.

Take that disappointment and let it push you forward to express and experience new joy. It could very well be that you discover a joy even more profound than what you missed out on.

Life’s good possibilities keep on coming. Don’t miss the next one because you’re too wrapped up in disappointment over the last one.

Instead, take it upon yourself to be a conduit for life’s best joys and possibilities. Let go of the past and give yourself plenty of space to experience a positive and fulfilling moment right now.

Enjoy the big, momentous events, the small, intimate moments, and everything in between. Decide that you can experience joy in the most unlikeliest of places, and you will.

Though you may have missed out on a few good things, they are far outnumbered by the whole world of positive possibilities in which you’re now immersed. Step joyfully forward and delight in bringing the best of those possibilities to life.

— Ralph Marston
