What’s right

It’s never the wrong choice to do what’s right. It may be painful, complicated, difficult, and inconvenient, yet your best choice is to go with what you know is right.

If your words or actions feel wrong, they likely are. Those feelings arise from a whole lot of living experience, so respect their guidance.

Many of your best so-called logical, rational decisions are actually just reasoned justifications for what you already feel. Accept that you have an emotional bias, and put it to beneficial use.

Whatever mixture of reason and emotion may be telling you what’s right, listen and follow your own highest guidance. You avoid much regret and create much goodness by doing so.

Your values are what hold your life together. Let them do their job by making the choice that aligns with those values.

Keep offering your life and your world the powerful, abiding benefits of integrity. Take every opportunity to do what’s right.

— Ralph Marston
