You still can

Even though you may not agree, you still can understand. Even though things may not work out the way you had planned, you still can move positively forward.

Even when you are surrounded by darkness, you still can brightly shine. Even when you have fallen short of the mark a thousand times, you still can give it another shot and succeed.

Even if you have been hurt, you still can find the strength to be kind. Even if you are gripped by fear, you still can find the courage to take action.

For the future equals the past only in your own assumptions. Let go of those limiting assumptions, and you’re free to move in any direction you choose.

This moment right now is truly golden. Because this moment right now is yours to create.

No matter what may have already happened, you still can make life the best that it can be. Step confidently, joyfully, enthusiastically forward and fully live the life you were born to live.

Because, even now, especially now, you still can.

— Ralph Marston
