When life demands much

You wish for comfort, for the long, difficult challenge to be over somehow. And yet, in that challenge you can continue to find new strength and meaning.

In meeting all the challenges, day after day, life grows in substance and richness. As difficult and uncomfortable as it may be, working through challenges makes you more fully alive.

There are no quick solutions, no easy answers to life’s most significant challenges. Yet in stepping up and dealing with those challenges, you connect with great value.

You learn what’s truly important, and figure out how to support and expand it. You come to more deeply treasure all you love.

You grow more capable, more resourceful, more caring, understanding, patient. The more costly the investment you make in life, the more valuable your whole world becomes.

Go ahead, feel your strength, step up to the challenges, make a difference in your own way. When life demands much, that’s your opportunity to give even more.

— Ralph Marston
