When you clench your fist, no one can put anything in your hand, nor can your hand pick up anything.
-- Alex Haley
The best there can be
It is by giving of yourself that you fully understand and appreciate how very much you have available to give. It is by making a small difference, again and again, that you realize what an enormous difference you can make.
Do you ever feel like hunkering down and hiding from life because it has been so cruel and difficult? In fact, your best choice is the complete opposite.
If life has disappointed you, itís because you havenít opened yourself fully to its wonder and richness. When life is pushing hard against you, itís because youíve been holding back.
The external disappointments are possible only because there is beautiful and worthwhile and meaningful internal value. Let that value freely flow out from you, and delight in the experience as it colors your world in a more positive light.
Lifeís goodness is made possible by your vision of that goodness. Your dreams are made real by your commitment to them.
Give the best that you have. And youíll experience the best there can be.
ó Ralph Marston
