The Life That Is You

You can choose to be happy or you can choose to be miserable. Which would you rather be?

You can choose to make productive and purposeful use of the moments in this day or you can choose to let the time slip away and be left with nothing but regret. Which would you choose?

Life is what you decide you are going to make of it. What have you decided to make of the 'possibility-filled' moment that is right now?

You can complain that it's all so very unfair, but all that will accomplish is to bring you down even more. Or, you can fully accept life as it is and then experience the genuine satisfaction of making your way forward in spite of the obstacles.

You can choose to hide behind excuses or you can open yourself up to the richness of life. You can decide to make the most of whatever comes your way, and know how great it feels to be fully alive.

No matter what has come before, life in this moment is what you decide to make it. Consider all the possibilities, and then choose the life that is you.

-Ralph Marston
