What will today bring?

Today is full of opportunity. Everywhere you go, everything you do, every person you meet gives you the potential to make a difference -- in your life, in the lives of others, in your community and in the world at large.

Welcome the challenges. Look for opportunities, in every situation, to learn and to grow. Delight in the beauty that is around you. Offer your sincere kindness and caring to others. This is the stuff of life.

Your are fully alive and capable of making this day into whatever you want it to be. Though you often cannot control the situations that come along, you always can control the way you deal with them.

Every moment is your opportunity to express the wonderful, unique person that you are. Life is not in the fondly-remembered past. It is not in the hoped-for future. It is here and now. What you are now, is what you are.

Anything that may have previously held you back is now behind you. Today is your golden opportunity to fashion your life into what you want it to be.

Take a deep breath, put a smile on your face, and make it a great day.

— Ralph Marston
