On this very day

Right now is your only opportunity to live this one-of-a-kind day. Fill its moments with purpose, experience, feeling, wonder, kindness, and love.

Remind yourself how fortunate you are to be here, now, alive, aware, and able to make a difference. Share your good fortune by offering the best version of yourself to everyone you encounter.

Choose not to waste any of today’s precious time on things that bring you down or on matters that don’t really matter. Keep your focus on the beauty, on the goodness, on all you love.

Don’t rush ahead, don’t fall behind. Embrace each moment as it arrives and work to fulfill its unique opportunities.

The richness of your life does not live in some distant time or faraway place. It is here, now, ready to be experienced and expressed.

Step boldly forward and connect with the great value that is yours to live on this very day. Realize who you are, what you have, everything you can do, and be inspired to put it all, right now, to great use.

— Ralph Marston
