Stop and consider

When you feel yourself struggling to get what you don’t really want, stop. And consider what an exquisite miracle you already are.

If you catch yourself complaining that things are not going your way, think for a moment. And see that everything that is, can be put to positive purpose.

If you’re consumed with worrying that you might lose it all, gently and lovingly calm your thoughts. Realize that what truly has value can never be taken away.

When you’re tempted to blame others for all of your troubles, take a step back. And understand that the way to control your own destiny is to take full responsibility for your life.

Before you let fear hold you prisoner, remember this. You can learn from the fear, you can use it to more fully prepare, and you can then move confidently ahead.

Before you allow any person, thought, feeling, event or situation to get you down, take a deep breath and consider. This moment is still unfolding, and you can choose right now to make life better than it has ever been.

— Ralph Marston
