Keep working

You have to keep working at life. And that’s a very good thing, because the more work you put into life, the more fulfilling it becomes.

Even if you could get everything perfect in your world, it wouldn’t stay that way. And that’s a very good thing, because you’d soon be bored with all that never-ending perfection.

You’re at your best when you’re making things better. Life is best when you’re able to continue investing yourself in it.

Learn to be thankful that your paint job weathers and peels, that the weeds grow back in your garden. Things like that are life’s way of giving you something to do, of providing you with a way to make a difference.

Every difficulty you encounter helps you avoid being useless. Every challenge you confront gives purpose and strength to your experience.

Each day is your opportunity to make real progress in an imperfect world where things often go wrong. Keep working at life, and keep all of life moving forward.

— Ralph Marston
