Great possibilities

Stop for a moment and think. Think of all the things you have going for you today. Oh, sure, you have your challenges and difficulties and those have a way of demanding your attention. Look past them for a moment, though, and remember that life, on the balance, is very very good.

You live in a world that is bursting with opportunities, at a fascinating time in history when knowledge is expanding ever and ever faster. You’re able to get things accomplished. You can think, you can take action, you can turn the challenges and obstacles into opportunities.

You can be creative. You can love and have compassion. You can make a difference. The world around you is filled with beauty, with energy and with possibilities. You are alive to experience it all, to follow the very best of those possibilities.

Though setbacks are an inevitable part of making progress, nothing can hold you down for long when you keep in mind all the great things you have going for you right now.

— Ralph Marston
