The more sand that has escaped from the hourglass of our life, the clearer we should see through it.

Choose courage

Courage is not some magic power that’s only available to superheroes. Courage is a choice that’s available to anyone, at any time.

The world is filled with challenges. Those challenges become especially acute whenever you seek to move forward.

Any kind of progress demands that you work through challenges. Courage is the willingness to do that, to accept the risk so you can achieve the reward.

Certainly it is foolish to seek unnecessary, unproductive risk. Yet it is just as foolish to think you can thrive without ever encountering any challenge or risk at all.

Courage is not a matter of being foolish or irresponsible. Courage is taking calculated risks to produce meaningful rewards.

With love, with awareness, with purpose, with care, choose courage. Step up to the challenges, and do your part to make life better for all who live it.

— Ralph Marston
