Forward in time

Time moves forward, and you cannot go back to the way things were. You can, however, make your world even better than ever.

You can take the goodness you’ve experienced in the past, and express that goodness in new ways. You can move beyond the pains you’ve known, with increased wisdom and determination.

You can build upon the successes. You can also learn much from past mistakes, transforming that knowledge and experience into greater effectiveness.

Time rearranges the circumstances of life. And yet time cannot diminish the purpose and the values that live at your core.

As time moves you forward, make use of the opportunities that surely come with each unfolding moment. Focus on how you can transform the best of what has been, that still lives within you, into rich, meaningful new value in the present.

Joyfully welcome each new day, and each new moment in time. As you grow stronger and more purposeful with every experience, the best is yet to come.

— Ralph Marston
