There came a time when the risk to remain tight in the bud was more painful than the risk it took to blossom.

Step back from the frenzy

Much of what feels so urgent right now, you won’t even remember tomorrow. Step back from the frenzy, and enjoy some perspective.

The news headlines screech and scream, but there’s nothing new about them. The real news is that life carries on, its wonder and beauty endlessly unfolding.

Take a moment, take a breath, and experience the miracle of existence, of awareness. Think of all the good choices you have, and how many more there must be that you’ve never even thought to consider.

Most of what demands your attention, doesn’t deserve it. Ease away from all that, and see the deep beauty in what you’ve lately forgotten to notice.

You put great effort into being able to live a good life. Remind yourself to fill its moments with substance, with meaning, with what’s real, with what matters to you.

Feel good about this moment simply because it is, because you are here to live it. And you’ll find plenty of worthwhile, fulfilling things to do with it.

— Ralph Marston
