You can be

You are not all that you could be. Today you have the good fortune to work on that.

Think of the most awe-inspiring experience you’ve ever had. What is it exactly, within you, with which that awe continues to resonate?

The beauty that leaves you stunned, the wonder, the awe, all call to your higher self. Life’s moments of extreme excellence push you in the direction of being all you can be.

There is a reason why you are drawn to stare at the ocean’s distant horizon, or the endless night sky, or a flawlessly beautiful painting. There is a reason why certain musical passages can radically alter your mood and physiology.

It is because your life has great meaning and in certain moments you can feel the extent of that meaning throughout the whole of your being. In those moments you understand that although you are not all you could be, you can be.

Let yourself be awed by life and see that in the middle of that awe, there is you. Feel the promise, feel the challenge, and commit once again to being all you can be.

— Ralph Marston
