Your life is now

Just because you have stumbled is no reason to continue to stumble. On the contrary, it gives you the opportunity to pick yourself up and continue.

Just because you have disappointed yourself or others is no reason to double down on that disappointment. You can now choose to turn in a different direction that’s more enriching for everyone involved.

You have not been perfect and won’t be perfect. Yet you can be much better and do much better.

The past is a great teacher but not a good refuge, and you certainly don’t want to imprison yourself there. Your life is now, and the choices you make now are the ones that matter.

Right now is when you can transform your disappointment into determination. Right now is when you can act with that determination to follow the highest purpose living deep within you.

Right now is when you can take all you’ve been and apply it to the best you can be. Your life is now, and there’s no limit to the good you can do with that opportunity.

— Ralph Marston
