Off to a great start

What can you do right now that will make the sky look more beautiful all day long? What thought, word, or action will give the afternoon more enjoyment, and make dinner more delicious?

The experience of life does not merely come to you. A significant part of it is made by you.

However good life may otherwise be, you can make it better. Somewhere, somehow, in some real and accessible way, you know how.

Let yourself do it. Allow yourself and encourage yourself to improve upon your world.

Be in love with all you love and make it your business to do something about it. The way you are right now sets the stage for what you will feel, what you will do, and how fulfilling it will all be.

The remainder of this day, the rest of your life, it all begins right now. Get it off to a great start.

— Ralph Marston
