Fulfill your wishes

Looking back on today, what will you wish you had done? Now is your opportunity to fulfill those future wishes.

The most painful regrets are for things not done, for opportunities missed, and for actions not taken. Now is your chance to avoid those regrets by taking action, when you can.

Now is a day to fill with life and love and effort and achievement. Now is the time you’ve been waiting for and working toward your whole life.

You’ll never look back and wish that you had spent more time worrying, or that you should have been more angry or resentful. So keep worry, resentment and anger out of your life today.

Instead, think of what you can do with this day that will cause you to look back on it with gratitude. Remind yourself, over and over again, that this is your chance to actually do those things.

Right here and now, make your future wishes come true. And when you arrive at tomorrow, instead of empty, regretful wishes you’ll have the real satisfaction of a truly fulfilling life.

— Ralph Marston
