Do what you can do

Do what you can do. Someday you’ll be thankful for making good use of the time available to you.

Life is not fair and a whole lot of obstacles stand in your way. Time is short and you find it difficult to get any cooperation.

Nonetheless, do what you can do. If anything, the difficulties indicate how important it is that you go forward.

You can’t change the all-too-arbitrary nature of reality. Yet you can make a positive difference for at least one person, and most likely many more.

You may not receive appreciation or acknowledgement, but that’s okay. You’ll find plenty of reward in the effort and can manage just fine without the praise.

Though it’s probably not trendy or sophisticated, do what you can do. There’s plenty of simple goodness within you that’s eager to come out.

— Ralph Marston
