You cannot make yourself feel something you do not feel, but you can make yourself do right in spite of your feelings.

Say yes to life

Say yes more often to life and life will more often say yes to you. Accept more of the opportunities that come your way and your best possibilities will be more fully realized.

It can be intimidating and uncomfortable to go off in a direction you’ve never traveled before. Ultimately, though, the sting of regret for not following an opportunity is much more painful than the discomfort of pushing yourself into unfamiliar territory.

The fullness of life comes to those who choose to truly live it. That choice is presented in every moment as you are exposed to a continuous stream of possibilities.

There’s nothing to be gained by seeking to run off in every direction at once. Yet there is much to be gained by following the best of the possibilities that offer themselves to you.

Life’s magnificent abundance is experienced by those who are willing to eagerly jump into it. To know great and wonderful things, you must make yourself available to live your way through them.

Choose to say yes a little bit more often. Life’s richness and meaning grow as you do.

— Ralph Marston
