You cannot make yourself feel something you do not feel, but you can make yourself do right in spite of your feelings.

Make it count

Don’t miss out on the value in this moment by wishing that it had somehow been different. Live it for all that it can be.

Don’t let this beautiful day slip uselessly through your fingers while consumed with worry about what tomorrow will bring. Make full use of the time you now have, and that will put you in the best position to face anything that may come.

Whatever your age, or level of physical ability, or financial situation, there is something positive and valuable you can do right now. Consider all the beautiful choices that life is currently making available to you, and then seize the best of them.

You already know how satisfying it feels to make a positive difference. Realize that you now have the opportunity to experience that satisfaction again, right where you are.

Life is happening all around you right now. This moment is precisely what you make it.

Make it full, and rich, and memorable and valuable. Give your best to this moment and truly make it count.

— Ralph Marston
