Best possibilities

Some people think they can demand your attention just by being outrageous. Give your attention instead to those who offer real substance.

If you allow yourself to be offended, you’re allowing someone else to dictate your thoughts and feelings. Instead of being offended, you can choose to be amused or inspired, or to simply let it go.

Give your time the respect it deserves. Use it for what truly matters, not just to feed someone else’s ego, or your own.

Focus on the best possibilities, not merely on the loudest spectacles. Give your attention to life’s true beauty.

You’re surrounded by a universe that is endlessly fascinating and overflowing with valuable substance. You can live each moment of every day with meaningful, authentic richness.

There’s no need to settle for a flimsy, superficial imitation of what matters. You deserve the real thing, so live it each and every day.

— Ralph Marston
