It's ok to be joyful. In fact, it's more than ok -- it is perhaps the most valuable gift you can give to life.
Joy feels so good because it is so very good. In joy, with joy, because of joy, all of life advances.
Be genuinely joyful, and bring out the joy in all those around you. Delight in the wonder and the possibilities of this moment, and you'll encourage others to see their own beautiful possibilities.
See your circumstances as empowering, and they will be. Because you will be empowered by your own positive perspective.
This is the moment, right now, to live according to your highest, most precious values. Feel the joy that radiates from your own authentic being.
Be your best by being truly joyful. Let your joy spread far and wide.
-- Ralph Marston
