Move life forward

Life is a continuing series of opportunities to make a difference. Because of that, valuable outcomes are always possible.

There is a way to get from where you are to where you want to be. There are ways to improve your life and the lives of others, no matter the burdens, no matter the challenges.

The path forward is never a straight line, but that path always does exist. The journey is not easy, yet the goal is within your ability to reach.

At every turn you have the chance to provide beneficial, useful input. No matter what happened in the previous minute, you can work to make some sort of improvement in the next minute.

In this way, little by little, you move life forward. In this way, day after day, you continue to inject hope, meaning, purpose, and achievement into your world.

Even in the darkest moments, the opportunity for progress always exists, always renews itself. Seize that opportunity now, and again and again, for doing so is precisely what makes life so very much worth living.
