All children are artists. The problem is how to remain an artist once he grows up.

Fill the moments

Today is a bright new day. It is a day in which you can cast off the self-imposed and self-imagined limitations which have in the past held you back. It is a day full of new possibilities.

Today is yours to experience, to live, to accomplish and to move forward. There will be some surprises, there will be some challenges. They are all part of the experience. They are all part of your learning and growth.

You have no choice but to spend this day, and to use it up. Tomorrow it will be gone. Yet you do have a choice as to what you do with it. Though this day will not last very long, the goodness and value you create from it can be with you always. Keep that in mind as the moments fly away. Make sure you have something to show for those moments. This day, these moments are yours to use, but only while they’re here.

Today will be gone very soon, and yet you can keep as much of its value as you decide to keep, by virtue of the efforts you use to fill its moments.

— Ralph Marston
