If we could learn to like ourselves, even a little, maybe our cruelties and angers might melt away.

Tomorrow can wait

If your mind is always jumping ahead to what might be next, you miss the opportunity to fully live what is now. Be patient, be thankful, and let life come at its own pace.

Stop looking so much at the clock, and focus more on your purpose. Tomorrow can wait while you make today great.

If you hurry, concerned that you don’t have enough time, you’ll waste much of the time you do have. Take the necessary time and give sufficient attention to each task, so as to get maximum value from it.

Live each moment with deliberate, peaceful purpose, not with hurried, worried anxiety. In your eagerness to get ahead don’t leave the opportunity of this day behind.

Be ambitious while also being patient about it. Then you can truly enjoy the fruits of your ambition.

Take a deep, relaxing breath and feel the great value of the moment you’re already in. Fully live that value, here and now, and make it always yours.

— Ralph Marston
