Opportunity of your life

Today you have an opportunity, the likes of which cannot be equaled. You have the opportunity to live. Think for a moment about what that means. Though the day may include some pain, loss, discomfort and disappointment, it is also full of life. You can sense. You can think. You can act. You can build. You can grow. You can create.

You are alive and the possibilities are endless. How will you make use of your good fortune at being alive today? There are so many ways to make a positive and lasting difference in your own life and in the world around you. Which of these will you choose to pursue on this day that is filled with opportunity?

Take a deep breath of fresh air and feel your body fill with the energy of being alive. Hold your head high and put a smile on your face. Though troubles surround you they cannot defeat you. Stay in touch with what it means to be alive as you move forward through the beautiful living blessing of today.

— Ralph Marston
