This is the day

If you’ve been waiting to start really living your life, today is the day to begin. As of this moment, your wait is over.

Sure, it would be nice if you could wait just a little bit longer, to get in better shape, to get a little more organized, or to save up some more money. The fact is, though, that things are never going to be perfect, so why not just go ahead and jump right now into the fullness of life?

You know all those things you’ve been telling yourself that someday you’ll get around to doing? That idealized someday is never really going to come, yet the good news is that today is just fine and is here for you right now.

Today is what you have to work with. Today is when you can actually give life to your dreams.

Today you can put those things you’ve been meaning to do into real, effective, fulfilling action. Today you will experience how good it is to go beyond merely planning, dreaming and intending, and to bring those beautiful plans to life.

Though it may seem very ordinary, this is the day you’ve been waiting to live. Breathe in the sweet air of limitless possibility, and make life as rich as you know it can be.

— Ralph Marston
