If you hear a voice within you say, "You cannot paint" then by all means paint and that voice will be silenced.

Your unique beauty

Living your own beauty is far more fulfilling than imitating the beauty of others. Enjoying your own life is infinitely more satisfying than wishing for a different life.

No person’s situation is perfect. And yet, within any situation lives the possibility for goodness, truth, joy, and love.

By all means, seek to better yourself and your world. But don’t ever turn your back on the good aspects that already exist in your life.

Though you certainly don’t have it all, there is much you do have. Be thankful and eager to make new, interesting, fulfilling use of it.

This very day, you can be enjoying the life you love. You can choose to recognize your good fortune, your unique beauty, and to live it fully.

What you have is the chance to participate in life today, in your own beautiful way. Take hold of that great treasure, and eagerly make the most of it.

— Ralph Marston
