Be realistic

Is it realistic to be positive about life, when there is so much trouble and strife in the world? Is it realistic to expect the best of yourself, and to expect the best for your own life? Is it realistic to expect that the future will be bright and full of joy?

Absolutely. In fact, to live positively and abundantly is the most realistic way to live. Reality is overwhelmingly abundant. Think of all the energy contained in just one day’s worth of sunlight. Think of all the beauty that comes with the change of each season. Think of all the incredible possibilities wrapped up in a single life.

Yes, there is some darkness in the world. Bad things happen. And the reason we hear so much about them, is because they are the exceptions. On the whole, life is positive and abundance is a reality.

Don’t be blinded by negativity. Be realistic. See the limitless possibility for good in your life, and live it.

— Ralph Marston
