Ideas are like rabbits. You get a couple and learn how to handle them, and pretty soon you have a dozen.

You are

Live today like you are someone special, because you are. Live today like you are created for success and fulfillment, because you are. Live today as if a world of opportunity were stretched out in front of you, because it is.

As you go through this day, keep in mind that every thought, every feeling, every sight and sound is truly miraculous because you are alive and able to perceive it. Gaze in awe at the vastness of possibilities which are yours to choose and follow.

Live today as if what you become is more important than what you have, because it is. Live each moment of this day fully mindful of the miraculous reality of your existence.

Transcend the disappointments, because you can. View the problems as opportunities, because they are. Live with purpose, focus and joy because that is who you really are.

— Ralph Marston
