Always a way through

There is always a way through. Calm down, take a breath, back away from the drama and find that way.

Life’s realities are not always pleasant or comforting or convenient. Accept reality, and at the same time, refuse to be stopped by it.

Steady your nerves as the situation crashes down around you. Then pick up the pieces and do something useful, helpful, good, and valuable with them.

Keep your cool when tensions are hot. Engage your steady hand to navigate through rough and roiling passages.

There is always a way through. And on the other side, great value, opportunity, a new, stronger perspective.

With grace and confidence, see beyond the disruptions of the moment to a positive vision of what can be. With calm determination, lead the way there.

— Ralph Marston
