Be okay with that

There are people who do not understand you. Be okay with that, and then work in a positive way to encourage more understanding.

There are things that will happen to set you back. Be okay with that, and be ready to quickly recover from the disappointments.

Life is not always fair. Be okay with that, find the beauty anyway, and do all you can to offer genuine compassion to those who suffer from unfairness.

This day may not turn out exactly the way you planned. Be okay with that, and make use of it to create new value anyway.

You may not like what has already happened, but there’s nothing you can do to change the past. Your best strategy is to let it be what it has been, to be okay with it, and to move toward the future you wish to create.

Invest your time and energy in new positive efforts where they will make a difference, not in bitterness about whatever has come before. Be okay with the way things are, and be in a position to make them much better.

— Ralph Marston
