Man is condemned to be free; because once thrown into the world, he is responsible for everything he does.
-- Jean-Paul Sartre

Something unexpected will happen today, and tomorrow, and every day. You can worry about what it might be, and fight against it when it comes, or you can accept it and deal with it in a positive way.

You cannot escape from life’s uncertainty, and you really wouldn’t want to. Although that uncertainty can bring pain, it can also bring great joy and powerful new positive possibilities.

What you can do is choose to grow stronger with each twist and turn. What you can do is learn, adapt, create, innovate and successfully adjust to life as it changes from day to day.

Uncertainty can sometimes be very disruptive and inconvenient and challenging. Fortunately, you have the skills to meet those challenges, and to move your life forward no matter what may come.

Though you can’t know for sure what will happen in the future, you can know for sure that there’s always a way to make the best of it. There’s always a way to remain true to your most treasured values, and to live your life according to your highest vision.

Life is not always predictable, but that’s no reason to fret. Because in that unpredictability, you’ll always find valuable and meaningful new positive opportunities.

— Ralph Marston
