Living with joy

Whether the task is difficult or easy, do it with joy. Whether the day is gray or sunny, live it with joy.

Whatever situation you and your world are in, it’s far from perfect. Even so, there’s plenty of room for joy.

Living with joy is not a matter of ignoring or avoiding life’s difficulties. On the contrary, an inner, abiding joy energizes and inspires you to more effectively meet those difficulties.

Joy keeps you connected to your best possibilities. Joy is a gift you can always give without limit to yourself and everyone else.

You have plenty of good and meaningful reasons for moving forward no matter what is in your way. Joy is an acknowledgement and a reminder of those reasons.

Put some joy here, put some joy there, put some joy wherever you go. Give yourself the clear and powerful perspective of living life with joy.

— Ralph Marston
