Now is beautiful

It is now, and you are here. Instead of wishing in vain that you were somewhere else, give positive and loving energy to where you are.

It is fantastic to have a desirable and ambitious destination. To reach that destination, you must start by fully accepting and appreciating where you now are.

Decide that now is beautiful and that this place is filled with opportunity. Decide, and it is so.

No amount of regret or resentment can change the past. Choose instead to simply be thankful that you are here now, able to move positively forward.

Stop the fighting against what is, and start working on the good and valuable things that can be. Gratefully accept and make use of the profound power that is yours here and now.

This moment has great value that is yours when you choose to live it. You are here, and it is now, so embrace that value and give it your own unique meaning.

— Ralph Marston
