Onward and upward

Stop fighting against what is and start living for what can be. There is no way to change what already has happened. Rather than continuing to struggle against it, find a way to make use of it. Where you are and what you have is everything you need to move toward any place you desire.

There are more possibilities open to you than you can even imagine. So challenge yourself and make the effort to imagine the very best. Go ahead and live those possibilities. Go ahead and fulfill the deepest and most profound purposes with which you are blessed.

There is no reason to be stopped by what has happened in the past. Any circumstance that has the power to hold you back also has the energy to push you forward. Choose to move forward. Choose to make use of the incredible and wondrous gift of life with which you have been so richly endowed.

Leave your complaints and disappointments behind as you move onward and upward toward the best you can possibly imagine.

— Ralph Marston
