Most men pursue pleasure with such breathless haste that they hurry past it.

Feel good about you

You deserve to feel good about life now. Stop being so hard on yourself.

Imagine you’re someone else who is discussing the way you live. That imaginary other person would not be nearly so critical of your life as you are.

In fact, that other person would see plenty of good things about you. What are those good things you’re overlooking in your life because they’re so familiar?

Step back from the harsh judgments you’ve been imposing on yourself. Give yourself some breathing room, relax, and let yourself feel good, now, about you.

No, you’re not perfect, you’ve made mistakes and will continue to do so. Yet there’s a great reservoir of goodness in you.

With quiet confidence and humility, and the best of expectations, feel that goodness. Feel good about you, about the good you can do, and allow beneficial actions to flow freely from your good feeling.

— Ralph Marston
