The way you choose to see life

Even when every person you encounter seems to be thoughtless, rude, inconsiderate, you can still be kind. Even when you feel nothing is going your way, you can still move forward with hope and positive action.

You cannot control much of what unfolds in life. Yet you can control you, how you think, how you feel, what you do, and that is more than enough.

Sure, the quality of your life is affected by outside forces and events. What makes the biggest difference, however, is the way you choose to see life, and to live it.

You can improve your day, powerfully, positively and instantly, by improving your attitude. Whatever is going on, the most successful way to deal with it is from an optimistic, enthusiastic perspective.

In life you’ll encounter a wide range of situations, but you never have to be a victim of circumstance. There is a positive way forward in every moment, and you can always choose it.

For all the drama, noise and angst of this day, there is much good you can do. Decide now, and always, to see it, do it and live it.

— Ralph Marston
