The first problem for all of us, men and women, is not to learn, but to unlearn.

Feel life getting better

Are your feelings held hostage by an uncaring, unpredictable world? They don’t have to be.

Are you joyful only when certain things happen, and sad when other things happen? There is a much better way.

Yes, negative things will happen and it is natural to be disappointed by them. Wonderful things will happen, and it is great to express joy.

But you don’t have to let the negative things keep you down. And you don’t have to hope or wait or beg for the good things in order to be joyful.

You can feel the way you choose to feel, no matter what may be going on around you. That doesn’t mean you are uncaring, but rather that you are intentional in the way you care.

Make positive use of that intention to choose the feelings that will improve the situation for everyone. Feel life getting better, act on your feelings, and make your world a more positive place.

— Ralph Marston
