You don't get to choose how you're going to die. Or when. You can only decide how you're going to live. Now.
-- Joan Baez

Others can guide you, teach you, and encourage you. Yet what you truly know is whatever you experience for yourself.

When you understand and appreciate the true value of experience, then every experience indeed becomes valuable. The good times and the not-so-good times all bring with them the golden treasure of experience.

Be willing to live through whatever life sends your way, and you will grow stronger with each passing moment. Be thankful for the opportunity to experience whatever may be happening, and the experience you gain will serve you well.

You are more capable, more knowledgeable, more effective than you’ve ever been before. And with each new experience, that positive and valuable growth continues.

Delight each day in the experience of life. Treasure it, learn from it, live it and use every moment to reach ever higher.

— Ralph Marston
