Ever more valuable

Each day is filled with countless opportunities to make a positive difference. Each of us is blessed with numerous ways to do so.

Lift the world a little higher, and everyone benefits. The effect can be contagious. Make a positive difference, and it will spread. The caring and goodness you invest in others will multiply, going on and on far beyond you. What a way to make an impact!

There are plenty of justifications for being cynical, but there is no good reason to be. Likewise, there are plenty of excuses for not giving your best, and yet every reason in the world to do so anyway, and to be a genuine positive influence.

Be true to the best that you have and let it shine through each thing you do. The richness of your life grows ever more valuable each time it is shared.

— Ralph Marston
