Difficult and beautiful

Life can be very beautiful and life can be very difficult. Learn to appreciate the beauty so much that the difficulties cannot bring you down.

The way to deal with life’s difficulties is not to avoid them. The way to successfully deal with those difficulties is to overwhelm them.

Be more persistent than your most persistent problems. Use your creativity, your flexibility, your ingenuity and your passion to make your way forward no matter what.

Treasure the beauty in even the smallest, most seemingly insignificant things. Connect with the abundance that is woven through every fiber of life.

See each moment as an opportunity to make a small difference. Those small steps you make forward will soon add up to create big results.

Life can at times be difficult, but so what? The immense beauty and possibilities for joy are worth far more than all the troubles combined.

— Ralph Marston
