If life is to be sustained hope must remain, even where confidence is wounded, trust impaired.

Choose your path

The footprints you leave behind show clearly where you have been. Yet they do not dictate where you can now go.

Perhaps your life up to now has been difficult and filled with disappointment. Or perhaps it has been easy and filled with good fortune. None of that matters when it comes to the choices now available to you. At this moment in time, you can go in any direction you choose.

You can learn much by looking at how you arrived at where you are. Now that you’re here, you can benefit from what you’ve learned and experienced.

Now that you’ve been through your past, you have a much better idea of where you truly want to go. Look back at the footprints you’ve left behind, and decide where the next footprints will lead.

At this very moment, your possibilities stretch out in countless directions, yet your next step must be in one specific direction. You have the choice to make right now, so choose the very best.

— Ralph Marston
