Embrace life

When life comes at you, run out and embrace it. The more enthusiastically and completely you embrace life, the better it will be.

Embrace the beauty, the joy, the wonder and the abundance of life. At the same time, embrace the challenges, the setbacks, the disappointments and the difficulties.

For by embracing life fully, you put yourself in a position to make a positive difference. By welcoming the ups and the downs, you’re able to move forward from an effective and realistic perspective.

Certainly life has very real tragedies, yet often what seem to be disappointments are disappointments only because you imagine them to be. When you stop fighting them and start embracing them as part of life’s flow, you’ll find many of them not to be disappointments at all.

Whatever life sends your way at any given moment is what you have to work with. So embrace it and then set about to make the most of it.

Embrace life, and all the many paths it takes. Embrace life, and those paths will lead where you truly want to go.

— Ralph Marston
