When you have only two pennies left in the world, buy a loaf of bread with one, and a lily with the other.

Peacefully determined

Trying harder and harder won’t make you any more effective. Step back, take a breath, remember who you are, and allow good things to come through your efforts.

Pushing and shoving, even if it’s against your own fecklessness, is not the way to make progress. Let go of the worry and anxiety, and let yourself be your best.

The world continues to spin, the sun will rise again, and new possibilities are being born in every moment. Accept the unique value of where you are, and allow yourself to do something wonderful with it.

Raise your expectations, and don’t lose faith if those expectations are not met immediately. Choose to be inspired by the challenges, and you’ll position yourself to successfully work through them.

Instead of being frustrated or dismayed out of habit, be peacefully determined by intentional choice. Life is offering you opportunity in every turn of events, so graciously accept it and move forward with it.

Let go of the desperation, of the need to try so hard. And live with the confidence of knowing that you’re allowing your life to unfold in accordance with your authentic purpose.

— Ralph Marston
