Life as it is

This day is far from perfect. Even so, allow life to be good on this day as it is.

There is much you wish to achieve, places to go, things to experience. But don’t be in such a rush to get what you seek, that you minimize what you already have.

The possibilities for the future are amazing. And those possibilities are possible because the present is also so amazing.

Wherever you intend to go, you must start from where you are. Whatever you would like to do, to accomplish, begins with what you have right now.

So take a moment to truly value and appreciate life as it is. The more you cherish what already is, the more you’ll be able to do with it.

This is your starting point, this day, this situation, this life as it is. Connect with its goodness, live it for its own sake, and fill yourself with its positive power.

— Ralph Marston
