If we had no faults, we should not take pleasure in noting those of others.

A new pattern

Every burden you carry was created in the past. Now would be a good time to leave them there.

When you hold on to resentment, you are continuing to punish yourself for the wrongs that others have done. There’s really no good reason to do that.

Just because you have been disappointed in life a hundred times doesn’t mean you must be disappointed again. Today is a new day, and beginning a new pattern is just as realistic and accessible as continuing the old one.

Your future depends on your expectations, your choices and your actions. Don’t fill it with useless and burdensome negativity from the past.

Look forward, and look at the best within yourself when setting your expectations. Create a new, shining story of achievement and fulfillment, and get busy living that story.

The only way the past or anything else can hold you back, is if you let it. Choose instead to allow your highest vision to pull you toward authentic fulfillment.

— Ralph Marston
