You can make it better

Maybe you haven’t been knocked off track. Maybe you’ve found a better way.

Perhaps the challenge is not there to punish you. Perhaps it is there to strengthen you.

When something disappointing happens, you don’t have to automatically assume that it’s a negative. In fact, you can find a way to make it a positive.

No, life won’t magically be transformed into a wonderful experience just because you say so. However, there are always plenty of things you can do to make it better and better.

Remind yourself that there’s a positive response to whatever happens, and you’ll find that positive path forward. Commit yourself to making a difference, and you’ll discover countless ways to do so.

No matter what happens, choose to see the positive possibilities. You never have to settle for the way life is, because you can always make it better.

— Ralph Marston
