Wisdom is knowing what to do next, skill is knowing how to do it, and virtue is doing it.

Filled with life

You are constantly in the process of becoming. You are constantly in the process of growing, no matter what your age or what you’ve already been through. At the end of this day you will not be quite the same person you were when you woke up. You will have learned new things, lived through new experiences, known some new accomplishments and some disappointments.

Today is your opportunity to mold yourself and to direct your life. The person you are tomorrow will depend on how you live each moment of today. It’s a serious responsibility and a great opportunity.

The moments of this day may seem quite ordinary as you go through them. Yet every day is important, every moment is special and vital. They are your opportunities to live, to love, to grow, to learn, to accomplish, to become, to fulfill.

Rather than just looking at this day as another one to endure, see in it the wondrous amount of living with which it can be filled. Give today your best, and its golden treasures will be yours.
