Truth and reality

Dealing with reality is difficult. But avoiding reality is vastly more difficult.

The truth does not go away because you ignore it. The sooner you acknowledge what is true, what is real, and deal with it, the better.

Today you have the opportunity to be honest with yourself and with others. Today you have the opportunity to be realistic about what you must do and in fact to do it.

In the short term, that’s not your easiest choice. Looking at the big picture, though, it is without question your best option.

A life of quality, meaning, purpose and fulfillment cannot be based on any kind of deception or avoidance. As difficult and inconvenient as they may be, it is within life’s truth and reality that you can experience real richness.

Embrace what is true, what is real. That puts you in position to create what is good.

— Ralph Marston
