There is no beautifier of complexion, or form, or behavior, like the wish to scatter joy and not pain around us.

Life is what it is

Life is unfair, your problems are not your fault, no one understands you, and there’s never enough time. All of that is true and none of it matters.

What matters is what you choose to do with the situation as you find it. And despite all the challenges, you can choose to do some very spectacular, wonderful, valuable things.

Life is what it is, yet none of it has to hold you back. Life is what it is, and you can make purposeful use of it all.

Life is what it is, and the more eagerly you accept it the more richness you can create with it. Instead of complaining about the injustice and inconvenience, get busy and create a more compelling and robust alternative.

It’s no big news flash that there are problems in the world, so don’t waste your time spreading the word about them. Make the choice to invest your time building and spreading true goodness in your own special way.

This day is as it is, and with it you can do great things. Imagine the best possibilities, and enthusiastically give them life.

— Ralph Marston
