This grand opportunity

From where you are right now, the possibilities stretch out, as far as you can imagine, in every direction. Which ones will you choose to follow?

There are things you currently know nothing about, that you can learn. There are places you’ve never heard of, that you can discover and know.

There are endless combinations of people, places, things, ideas, and events poised to come into your life. Which of them will you choose to experience?

There are magnificent achievements, perfectly suited for you, which you have not yet even considered. There are things of great value that can flow from your passions, your skills, your knowledge and your willingness to make something meaningful out of it all.

The problems are many in this world, yet they are very small indeed when compared to the possibilities for a rich and fulfilling life. On this day, in this moment, you have the opportunity to choose from among a delicious variety of potential paths.

Life begins anew with the breath you take right now. Seize this grand opportunity and make it truly great.
