Welcome each moment

Welcome each moment, each feeling, each experience as it comes. When you constantly fear or fight whatever is coming next, you become continually stuck where you are.

By welcoming each moment, you begin to move forward. Even if the moment is not exactly what you wanted, welcome it anyway and you become free to move on to whatever is next.

Welcome each moment, whatever it might hold, and you will surely find something of real value in it. There is always a way to move forward, whatever the circumstances may be.

Instead of being weighed down with worry, anger or resentment for what is, put your energy into what can be. Rather than being imprisoned by the shortcomings of a particular moment, set yourself free to live its positive value.

Every moment has its problems, but so what? Welcome it anyway, and rather than dwelling on those problems, you’ll already be moving past them. Welcome each moment for the positive possibilities it surely offers, and by so doing you’ll begin to transform those possibilities into reality.

— Ralph Marston
