Make it better

Whatever way this day is going, you can make it better. You have the power, the ability and the opportunity to do so.

If you find yourself in a good and useful situation, you can make it even better. When you encounter a difficult and troubling situation, you can make that better as well.

Accept the reality of what is. Then get busy making your own unique positive contribution using whatever you have to work with.

Look at the events and circumstances of life not as things to fight against or to attempt to grab. See them as opportunities to build and grow.

Be truly thankful for whatever comes your way. For within all of it, there is room for you to add as much real, meaningful value as you wish.

See the possibilities in every moment, and find ways to give your best to life. Always, you can make it better, and by continuing to do so, you make it great.

— Ralph Marston
