Perfect days

If every day were perfect, no day would be special. What makes life so good is the fact that you can take whatever you have and make it better.

The bulk of your life is lived on days that are far from perfect. A less than perfect day is no reason to hold yourself back.

On the contrary, the difficult days are when you can make the biggest positive difference. Go ahead, whatever the circumstance, and live true to the highest of your abilities and desires.

Don’t postpone the joy in your life just because conditions are not ideal. Live the joy now, and your living of it will make everything better.

Use each day to create achievements and experiences, not to collect excuses or resentments. Do your best work, live your highest vision of life, free of the need to judge how things are.

Every day, every moment, is beautiful and valuable in its own way. Live the beauty as it comes, always, no matter what.

— Ralph Marston
