We must learn to reawaken and keep ourselves awake, not by mechanical aid, but by an infinite expectation of the dawn.

Something beautiful

Ask yourself this. What is beautiful about what just happened?

There’s something positive to be gleaned from everything that happens. Make it your mission to find that positive aspect.

It’s a waste of time to wish that things had happened differently. Instead, use your energy to cast the present situation in an empowering light.

Tap into the value that is in this very moment, in this very situation. Find the beauty in what is, and build upon it.

Always remember that your response does not have to be dictated only by the nature of what just happened. Craft your response so that it moves you in the direction you have chosen to move.

Something beautiful and enriching just happened. Choose to see it, and live life fully and richly on your own positive terms.

— Ralph Marston
