All that’s right

Every day, a few things go wrong. But a whole lot more things go right.

Do your best to fix what is broken. And remember to appreciate, support, and maintain the many things that continue to work very well.

It’s natural, and smart, to focus on the dangers and the risks. But imagine what would happen if you chose to focus a little more on the opportunities.

You’ll always have a number of issues to complain about. Yet there’s much, much more for which you can be thankful.

Be very careful not to discard or disparage all that’s good in your attempt to remedy what is wrong. Put your problems in perspective, for that’s what will enable you to solve them.

Yes, by all means improve on what’s wrong. Do it by fully valuing and making good use of all that’s right.

— Ralph Marston
