Big enough

Be bigger than the pettiness. Be bigger than those who may hurt or disrespect you.

Be big enough not to return negativity. Be big enough to set your own course, based on your values, not on what this person said or that person did.

Be big enough to care, to show it, to act on your caring. Be big enough to not let the disappointments stop you.

Be big enough to be generous. Be big enough to forgive.

Be big enough to respond with love. Be big enough to choose the most positive way forward from a difficult situation.

Be big enough to be humble, patient, kind. Be big enough to make life great for yourself and for everyone else.

— Ralph Marston
