Thought for Today!
Even though it is unpleasant, you can do it if you must. Even if it is difficult and complicated, you can work your way through it when you choose. Select your path not because it is easy but because it is right, for you, for your world, for your purpose, for your life. Spend your precious time not just to pass the time, but to build meaningful value. See that in each challenge is a new way to grow stronger. Know that in each problem is an opportunity to move forward. by Ralph Marston
