We could never learn to be brave and patient if there were only joy in the world.

By the end of this day

At the end of this day, you can be stronger than you are now. Live with that possibility in mind, looking for opportunities to fulfill it.

By the end of this day, some of the problems that now plague you can be gone. Identify the ones you can deal with, and get to work on them.

The clock has already started ticking on this day, and the moments will continue to relentlessly pass. Resolve now to make full use of them all.

There is value to be created, there are wounds to be healed, transgressions to be forgiven. There is beauty to be enjoyed, love to be expressed, kindness to be given.

Look toward the western horizon, where the sun will disappear after offering its brilliance all day. By the time that happens, you will have had the great opportunity to add new richness to life.

Think of how peaceful and satisfied you will be, at the end of this day, knowing you have given it your best. Think of how confident and enthusiastic you will be, knowing you can do even more tomorrow.
