Henceforth I ask not good fortune. I myself am good fortune.

Present moment

No matter how young or how old, no one has any more than the present moment you have right now. Whether wealthy, impoverished, famous, or obscure, every person has the same number of hours in this day.

Now is what you have, and it is more than enough. Today is the day you have, and with it you can add greatly to life.

Let go of every impulse to wish for more. Set yourself free to actually live for more.

The past was what it was, and now it is gone. Focus all the energy and resources of now, on the good things you can do with now.

Now is the time you can make a difference. This is the place where the next part of your life unfolds.

Stop wishing, stop waiting, stop doubting, blaming and delaying. Now is your time to live, with richness, with purpose, with zest, and with love.

— Ralph Marston
