Inner substance

When bitter winds howl through life, be strong, and thankful. When sunlight bathes your world in warmth and comfort, be thankful, and strong.

Some days you’ll feel on top of the world, and other days will seem like you’re sinking in a pit. You can choose to live them all with grace, integrity, strength and gratitude.

What’s outside will toss you around, lift you up and push you down. Through it all on the inside you can grow, stronger, wiser, with new understanding, compassion and love.

And what really matters when you encounter the most challenging challenges? What enables you to fulfill the most positive, compelling possibilities?

What matters is the authentic person you are inside. What matters is the inner substance you’ve built through all the experiences you’ve had.

Today things will happen, planned, unplanned, desirable, undesirable. Take it all in, work your way through, and tomorrow you’ll be better than ever.

— Ralph Marston
