We make our burdens ten times worse, by letting them get to us. When challenges come along, we resist, we feel sorry for ourselves, we worry, we get angry, and waste our energy on resentment.

We can not -- would not want to -- be free of challenges and obstacles. They are what we grow on.

Yet we can be free from our own negative, destructive reactions, just by deciding to accept what is, without adding to the pain.

By all means, strive to improve your lot. And all the while, be at peace with it. Do that, and every moment becomes golden. You will be that much more able to triumph over every challenge.

Accept what is, and get on with a life of joy and fulfillment.

-Ralph Marston
