Don’t sell yourself short

Remember as you go through the day that you are more than just a number in someone’s computer, more than just a dispensable part of the system. You are a living, breathing person, completely unique in all of history.

You can think and reason. You can make intelligent decisions. You can create. You can explore. You can seek the truth and find joy in the beauty around you. You can give your love and compassion to others. You can change things that anger or frustrate you. You can make a difference in your life and the lives of others.

You are alive with possibilities, no matter what has happened to you in the past, no matter what other people think or say about you, no matter what your situation. There is something you can do today that will continue to fulfill the special, priceless bundle of possibilities that is you.

There is more to you than anyone could possibly imagine. Do all you can to let that shine through.

— Ralph Marston
