New treasures

Treasure the past, but don’t let it blind you to your possibilities in the present. As memorable as the past has been, now you have new treasures to create.

Hold good feelings from long ago securely in your heart. And let them give you the courage, the enthusiasm, to move forward.

Learn from what you’ve done right, from what has worked well. At the same time, be open to new ideas and techniques, eager to acknowledge you will never know it all.

Draw strength and comfort from people, places, habits and skills that have become so familiar they are a part of you. But don’t seek permanent refuge in them.

Indeed, let your past joys encourage you to venture out into unknown territory, to create new joys. Open yourself to life as it continues to unfold in relentless originality.

You have new treasures to create. Inject all you have done, all you have learned, all you have been, and all you can now be, into making them great.

— Ralph Marston
