The best you can imagine

You are the child who danced in the sunshine. You are the young person who dreamed of changing the world. You always have been who you are. Yet now you’re even better, for you have the benefit of experience.

Life will have its ups and downs, but those circumstances do not define the value of who you are. What truly matters is what you decide to make of whatever you have.

Things may not always work out like you planned. Yet the joy, the love, the hope, the wonders you experience will stay with you. The pleasures and the pains will come and go. Fortune will sometimes smile on you and at other times it will seem that nothing is going your way.

Through it all, the possibilities open to you will continue to expand. And you can always choose to follow the best you can imagine.

— Ralph Marston
