Sometimes your joy is the source of your smile, but sometimes your smile can be the source of your joy.

Show up

Don’t overthink it. Don’t worry about what might or might not happen.

Just show up and give your best. Deal with the ups and downs as they come, and work your way through.

So very much is possible and pretty much nothing is guaranteed. Stay alert and aware as the situation unfolds and respond accordingly.

Make reasonable plans and be prepared to revise them. Learn from all you’ve done but don’t be so arrogant as to assume you know it all.

Sometimes you’ll do great, at other times you’ll get it wrong. Nonetheless keep showing up, keep giving your best.

Show up and do the work. Show up and earn the rewards of a rich and fulfilling life.

— Ralph Marston
