Good and fruitful living

It can be easy to feel disdain for that which you don’t understand or don’t agree with. Yet as accessible as that disdain may be, it doesn’t accomplish much.

Rather than sinking deeper into it, let the first twinge of disdain prompt you to turn your thoughts elsewhere. Choose to deploy your energy, your awareness, your thinking in more beneficial ways.

This world is full of opportunities for joy, goodness, and fulfillment. Don’t let a few misguided people convince you otherwise.

Somewhere the sun shines, the sea sparkles, and children laugh without the slightest care. Envision that reality and make it your business to make more of it.

Breathe in the fresh air of possibility. Let your thoughts and actions be driven by your love for life and for the best it can be.

Certainly the world has its dark corners, yet there’s plenty of territory available for good and fruitful living. Choose to inhabit that territory, and live to expand its size and influence.

— Ralph Marston
