Imagination grows by exercise, and contrary to common belief, is more powerful in the mature than in the young.

Good for life

Assemble the components of this day with confidence, but not with arrogance. Reap the benefits of your own unique perspective, always mindful that every other person’s perspective is just as valid.

Take care of yourself, be good to yourself so you’ll have plenty of goodness to enjoy sharing with others. Live your values, follow your dreams and delight in opportunities to resonate with the values and dreams of those around you.

Take satisfaction and pride in the good work you do, but don’t let that pride spill out into the world as conceit. If you feel the need to prove yourself, transform that energy into a humble desire to improve the world.

Respect and admire the special person you are. Offer even more genuine respect and admiration for every person you encounter.

Make life good for you by making yourself good for life. Be a beneficial force in the world, and you’ll enjoy the benefits of life in a positive, supportive environment.

Carry an attitude that is thankful for everything, entitled to nothing, willing and able to lift up life in every moment. Enjoy living in a world powered by love.

— Ralph Marston
