Yours to live

Today may not be perfect, and yet it is here, it is now, it is yours to live. Though there are dangers, and risks, frustrations and disappointments, through it all, in each day and each moment, you have the opportunity to experience the miracle that is your life.

There will always be something which needs to be done. Think of what a truly beautiful situation that is. Every day you can make a real and positive difference. Every moment you can work to move the world forward in your own special way.

There is no end to how high you can reach. There is no limit to how much you can love. Every accomplishment paves the way for another. Every day comes with new challenges that can bring out the best in you.

No one is certain what tomorrow will bring. And yet you can always be certain that whatever it is, the best way to prepare for it is to live today with purpose and passion.

You are rich beyond all measure because you have this day to live. Celebrate your good fortune by truly making it great.

— Ralph Marston
