You don’t have to

You don’t have to prove anything to anybody. You don’t have to live in fear of what others might think.

You don’t have to continue holding on to the negative habits and thought patterns that have held you back. You don’t have to keep living under the outdated assumptions that have closed your eyes to some of the best possibilities.

You don’t have to weigh yourself down with anger, resentment, fear or frustration. You don’t have to settle for less than the very best you can be.

You can live, you can give, you can love and achieve. You can take this very moment, with whatever it may hold, and transform it into a positive, enriching, fulfilling experience.

You can feel the truth and beauty of your authentic purpose, and take action to follow that purpose. You can let go of all the burdens you’ve imposed on yourself, and live this day with a powerful, newfound appreciation for all you have.

You can choose right now to meet each challenge with positive passion and enthusiasm for the best, most meaningful possibilities. You can choose, again and again, to truly live life on your own best terms.

— Ralph Marston
