Life’s substance

What you once felt, you still are. You carry with you today a lifetime of experience that grows with each new sight, sound, step, breath.

Whatever you do resonates within you for a long time. Realize what an opportunity that is to make life increasingly rich, meaningful, impactful, rewarding.

Over the years you’ll forget many of the details. Yet you’ll always have the living you’ve engaged in.

From every difficult season will eventually come treasures you never could have otherwise known. From bright, pleasant days will come even more.

Take them all in, carry them forward, share those treasures profusely. With your choices each day, create ever more of life’s substance to fill the years to come.

You’re able to spread purpose and meaning across time and space and into all the lives you touch. Marvel at your good fortune and seek to fulfill all the potential it affords you.

— Ralph Marston
