Good life

You might be highly frustrated today. But it’s a good life anyway.

People might cheat you, lie to you, and blame you for problems they themselves create. Even so, life has infinite capacity for goodness and fulfillment.

A whole lot of things cause you a whole lot of trouble. Yet when you step back and take a good, clear look, you see without question that life is well worth the trouble.

It’s all too easy to imagine sometimes that things are hopeless. But then you remember you’ve survived a lot worse, and in fact thrived, and so have many, many others.

Yes, at times life is tough. And it is precisely those times that enable you to see how very good life can be.

Whatever the situation, life is good when you decide it is good. And it’s your decision to make right now.

— Ralph Marston
