What you can do

What could have been doesn’t matter anymore. Who is to blame is beside the point.

What might or might not happen is mostly empty speculation. What people will think is what they will think, and there’s not much you can do about that.

What you can do is act on the opportunities in front of you. What you can do is utilize the time, energy, and resources available to you.

What you can do is identify a problem that’s holding your world back and work to create a solution. What you can do is envision some specific form of value and put forth effort to make it real.

What you can do is act to become a positive presence in the lives around you. What you can do is learn and grow and love and give.

Your sense of purpose grows stronger, and your life richer, with each action you take. Welcome and act on every chance to do what you can do.

— Ralph Marston
