Good new days

You cannot go back to a better time. Yet you can always go forward to a better time.

When you do, you carry with you a powerful perspective. It’s a perspective expertly informed by what worked out well in the past and what didn’t.

Time moves only in one direction. If you seek to move against it you become bitter, irrelevant, and ineffective.

Choose instead to embrace each moment as it arrives. Fill it with new instances of what you know to be good, worthwhile, true and beneficial.

Don’t waste your energy wishing for another yesterday. Take yesterday’s goodness and re-imagine it for tomorrow.

The good old days are gone, yet they’ve left you with an abundance of great experience. Now put that experience to use and get to work creating some good new days.

— Ralph Marston
