Somewhere within

Somewhere within you is the strength to love when love doesn’t seem to do any good. Find that strength, use it, do it.

Somewhere within is the confidence to let go of all that does not lift up life. Somewhere is the patience to understand, to respect, the wisdom to forgive.

Discipline, perseverance, tolerance, kindness, commitment, acceptance are all there too. You’ve earned this great store of treasure through every experience you’ve ever had.

Though bright shiny things in the world outside can be compelling, don’t ever let yourself forget. Inside is where value lives, and you can call on that value in any situation.

Everything that matters to you, matters because of the way you feel about it, inside. Within that reality is power to do just about anything you can imagine.

Somewhere within is the will to get up, get started, to keep going and to prevail against all odds. It’s as close as your next thought and as powerful as you choose to be.

— Ralph Marston
