The fortitude to act
Don’t wait until you feel better to take action. Take action, and you will feel better.
Don’t put off living your life until everything in the world is perfect. Go ahead, live fully in this moment, and give ongoing expression to your highest vision of life.
There always have been and always will be plenty of reasons for discouragement. And just as people have done for thousands of years, you can move forward anyway.
Even in the most serious of times, you can laugh, you can enjoy, and you can spread joy to others. That’s not a denial of reality but rather an improvement of it.
Avoiding your options will not improve or expand those options. Instead, take an active role in your own encouragement, enthusiasm, and sense of positive purpose.
Go forward with your life, no matter what may be standing in the way. You have the fortitude to act, to live well, if only you will use it.
