Who is it for?

The world is filled with beauty. But who is it for? It is for you, who can appreciate and enjoy it. Just think how very special you must be that you have such joy available to you.

Dreams are for you who can follow them. Success is for you who can achieve it. Desire is for you who can be moved by it. Life is for you, who can live it.

The world that surrounds you is there for you to experience, to interact with, to build and shape. The ride is not free. It takes sincere effort on your part. It is, however, filled with the brightest possibilities you can imagine.

Just to take one breath after another, to have all this in view and within your reach, is a blessing that has no equal. It’s all here for you. Feel for a moment the true depth of what you have in front of you, and you cannot help but make the very best of every beautiful portion.

— Ralph Marston
