The way it is

Let this day be the way it is. Let your life, your challenges, your hopes, dreams and frustrations be the way they are.

Let everything that is, be just the way it is. Then let yourself discover the good things you can do with it all.

You cannot successfully deny reality. What you can do, though, is acknowledge and greatly improve upon it.

Wishing for things to be different than they are is an empty wish. Working to make things the best they can be is a much more beneficial use of your time and energy.

Avoid wasting even a few moments of your life on anger, blame, or regret. Rise to a higher level, acknowledge the truth of what is, and make good come from it.

Let go of your need to control what is beyond you and embrace your power to control what is within you. Let life be just as it is, and let yourself do great things with it all.

— Ralph Marston
