Life at its best
You can make a difference, and you can make it now. You can make a difference, in your own life, in your family, your community, your world.
You can observe, you can think, you can learn, you can plan, you can act. You can choose what is beneficial over what is harmful, what is helpful over what is hurtful.
You can stand up straight, eager to move forward, instead of slumping in defeat and despair. You can look people in the eyes, and listen intently to what they say, and understand, and care.
When the world feels cold and cruel, you can be warm, compassionate, encouraging. Although life is not fair, and circumstances often go terribly wrong, there are plenty of ways you can improve the world around you.
You’ve done many good things and you can do many more. You know what is good, what is right, what is helpful, and you can act to make it happen.
Today you have the power to lift life a little higher. Make a difference, and feel yourself living life at its best.
