To get back my youth I would do anything in the world, except take exercise, get up early, or be respectable.

You know

What if someone offered you ten million dollars, and the only condition was that you had to explain in advance what you would do with it? Would you take that offer, and would you be able to come up with something meaningful to do with it?

Life each day offers you an opportunity that is worth far more than any amount of money. Yet you often fail to seize most of that opportunity because you just can’t commit on which way to go.

It’s not because you don’t know. It’s because you don’t allow yourself to believe that you can move in the direction you truly want to move.

Yes, you do know what you expect from life when you expect life to be the best it can be. In everything you like and dislike, in every opinion, in every frustration, in every joy, you know.

So admit that you know, admit what you desire, let it inform your actions, and let it put the energy of passion into all you do. Love all that you love, with all that you are, and enjoy being who you really want to be.

Life is offering you great richness, and what you must do is to let yourself want it, and let yourself know it is yours. Accept it now and live it very, very well.

— Ralph Marston
