Yet to come

Look at the world as it stretches out around you in all directions. Look at the beauty, the abundance, the possibilities and just see, just experience the wonder of it all.

For a few moments, let go of the need to control, let go of the need to judge, let go of the need to possess. Let go, and allow yourself to simply experience and appreciate what is.

Your responsibilities and obligations are real and they are pressing, yet they do not need to burden you. For they can never diminish the value you have to live and the value that is yours to give. Just because this world has its share of troubles is no reason to waste your time with worry. Instead, value and appreciate what is, for that puts you in the best position to deal with what will be.

Life is made richer by the passing of each moment, by living and valuing the experience, whatever it may be. And the real beauty is that the best is always yet to come.

— Ralph Marston
