There came a time when the risk to remain tight in the bud was more painful than the risk it took to blossom.

A world of possibilities

You can make a positive difference. You can move forward from this point on. It doesn’t matter who you are or what you have been or what you have done in the past. Though the past indeed has lingering consequences, those things cannot prevent you from moving forward when you’re determined and committed to do so.

Nothing can pull you down when you refuse to let it -- not any other person or group or situation or challenge. People just like you have overcome obstacles that truly would appear insurmountable even to the most optimistic person. People just like you have achieved things no one would have thought possible in their wildest dreams.

There are an infinite number of directions in which you can journey from where you are right now. Some will certainly be more challenging, and yet those will also be much more fulfilling. The choice of direction is entirely up to you. So envision your ideal future and then set out to make it happen.

— Ralph Marston
