Any activity becomes creative when the doer cares about doing it right, or better.

Get on with life

Bitterness is a choice. And you never have to choose it.

Plenty of people, situations, twists of fate could understandably make you bitter. Yet nothing has to make you bitter unless you choose to be bitter.

Whether it lasts for a week or for a lifetime, bitterness adds no value to your life. Even when you have a good reason to be bitter, bitterness is never a good choice.

By a long shot, the person who is hurt most by your bitterness is you. Instead of choosing bitterness, choose to quickly get past it.

Decide not to punish yourself one moment longer for what’s already been said and done. Decide to get on with life, and to get positive about it.

Leave the transgressions of your past, in your past. You have too much to live for, too much good to do, to let even the smallest bitterness hold you back.

— Ralph Marston
