“Life is the art of drawing sufficient conclusions from insufficient premises.” – Samuel Butler
May we see what is present, not what is missing.
Sufficiency rather than deficiency.
Channeling what is and making something more of it.
Moving from a place of enough to abundance.
Optimism isn’t denial of what exists.
It’s fuel to keep going and not resigning to scarcity, to “stuckness.”
If we focus on the holes, energy is drained, wasted.
Focus on possibility.
Put energy and effort there.
Move to awareness, action and abundance.
Make something of the substance, beauty and depth of life.
Imagination. Curiosity. Listen.
Make something of this day.
“The struggle is always worthwhile, if the end be worthwhile and the means honorable; foreknowledge of defeat is not sufficient reason to withdraw from the contest.” – Steven Brust
