There lies more faith in honest doubt, believe me, than in half the creeds.

Live in courage

You’ve done many courageous things. Just getting out of bed in the morning takes some degree of courage. And you’ve gone way past that.

Think of a time in your life when you were particularly courageous, a time when you were especially creative, persistent, focused or adventurous. Consider that you are still the same person even now. Certainly circumstances have changed since then, and you have changed as well. Yet that capacity for courage is still with you.

Connect yourself with that courage and put your life into it. You have it, there’s no doubt. It is there, waiting to move you forward. Let yourself live in it.

Though the world is often harsh, there are boundless opportunities all around you. And you have the courage to make the most of them. Gather the circumstances of your life and let that courage infuse them, so that everything becomes an opportunity for moving forward. Live in courage and make life great.

— Ralph Marston
