Enjoy and employ

It’s great when you can simply sit back and enjoy life in all its goodness and beauty. Yet if that passive enjoyment were to fill your whole life, it would soon cease to be enjoyable.

Enjoy life, marvel at its wonder, but don’t let that be the end of it. Let it be your inspiration to put all those great possibilities to good use.

Keep yourself always open to the abundance of goodness. Keep yourself ever committed to building on that goodness.

Be thankful for all the value in your life and in your world. Eagerly put that thankfulness into action.

Enjoy your good fortune. As a crucial part of that enjoyment, employ your good fortune to expand upon itself, for you and for others.

Take an active role in the goodness of the life you enjoy so much. Make full use of it to create even more.

— Ralph Marston
