It's a funny thing about life; if you refuse to accept anything but the best, you very often get it.

Encouraging break

When life has repeatedly dragged you down, that’s a great time to remind yourself of how beautiful and joyful life can be. When it feels like you can’t catch a break, that’s a great time to give yourself a positive, encouraging break.

Sure, you’ve had a rough spell, and guess what? You’ve made it through.

Now is your opportunity to keep going. It won’t be easy, and yet it may very well turn out to be the best thing that’s ever happened to you.

Every difficult day makes you stronger. Every challenge you work through makes you that much more capable of working through even bigger and more rewarding challenges.

There is joy to be found in all of life, even in the painful times. There is goodness to be created in every situation, especially the difficult and trying ones.

Life can be tough, and yet you can always be stronger. Make the choice to take it in stride, and make the decision to be even better than you were before.

— Ralph Marston
