Let us not look back in anger or forward in fear, but around in awareness.

Keep going

Keep going. Every step you take against the struggle, brings you to life. Never stop. The burdens you bear each day, build in you a depth of strength and character against which nothing can prevail.

Stand forth. Meet every challenge with the energy and enthusiasm of a soul who is grateful for the experience of being fully alive. Feel the wind as it blows in your face. Make its force your own. Lean into the wind and let it support you, even as you move steadily against it.

Let life’s troubles amuse you and teach you, rather than stop you. You are stronger than any challenge, and that strength increases with each one.

You are not your problems. You are the one special person who can turn those particular problems into grand achievements. Just imagine the incredible opportunity. Keep going. The harder the climb, the higher you’re getting.

— Ralph Marston
