Busy making it better

Life is not fair, but you can do something about that. Life is not fair, but you can achieve anyway.

You could complain about the unfairness, but your complaints won’t change much. A better option is to accept what is, and use that acceptance to find a workable way forward.

Anger, despair, resentment are all understandable, and not particularly effective. Take their energy and point that energy in a positive, constructive direction.

Yes, there is unfairness and injustice. Yet you can be a counterbalancing force for yourself, for another, for many.

Imagine what could happen if you let your negative impressions of life turn into positive actions. Instead of feeling the same old frustrations and disappointments again and again, you can harness them to move life forward.

Go beyond blame, beyond despair, beyond judgment. Let life be what it is for now, and get yourself busy making it better.
