What lies behind us and what lies before us are tiny matters compared to what lies within us.

Take good care

Take good care of yourself. Take care, not merely as a concept but as a continuing endeavor, hour after hour, day after day.

What you can do, for those around you, for all of life, proceeds directly from the person you are. The quality of the person you are is fashioned by ongoing attention, care, love, and diligence.

To be your best for others you must first, and always, be good to you. The strength you can give is the strength you enable yourself to establish.

Accept nothing but the highest good from yourself, for yourself. In all matters that affect your body, mind, and spirit, choose with great care, give well, and live well.

Nourish yourself, challenge yourself, reward yourself, improve yourself, and enjoy yourself. Shield yourself from undue harm while also pushing yourself to experience, to grow, and to appreciate.

Life looks to you to keep it good, and meaningful, rich, vibrant, and enduring. Take good care, and fulfill the great potential of your unique and beautiful life.

— Ralph Marston
