Make is a great day

What’s so great about today? Whatever you decide to make of it. This can be a day that’s quickly forgotten because it was just like all the rest. Or it can be a day that you fondly and gratefully look back upon for years and years to come.

This may seem to be an ordinary day, not that special or different than all the rest. Yet the truly powerful thing about this day is that it’s here right now for you to fill with life, with love, with learning, effort, discipline and accomplishment.

There is no other day in your future or past that offers that kind of opportunity. This day is it, your day to live, right here and right now. On this very day, you can take a clear and decisive step straight in the direction of your most treasured dream. By the time this day is over you can be well on your way toward whatever you desire to achieve.

What’s so great about today? It’s up to you and what you make of it, and just think what a truly priceless blessing that is.

— Ralph Marston
