Be not angry that you cannot make others as you wish them to be, since you cannot make yourself as you wish to be.

Take this day

Take this day and run with it. Look your problems squarely in the face and overcome them one by one. Reach into your own passion and purpose. See the life you were truly meant to live, and start living it this very day.

If you’ve allowed something to hold you back up until now, make it your business today to move on past it. You deserve to live fully. You are worthy and capable of great things. So get on with making them happen.

Use your feelings and emotions as a way to enjoy and experience the incredibly beautiful and diverse universe of which you are a part. Refuse to allow those feelings and emotions to keep you enslaved in any way.

Let this day know you were here. Have an impact. Make a difference. Express yourself and the purpose which drives you. Build and create, love, laugh, learn, share and console. Add your own special joy, your own unique perspective, your own dreams, thoughts, ideas and positive influences to this day. It is here. It is now. It is your grand opportunity to live on a scale as large as your possibilities. Make it unforgettable, starting right now.

— Ralph Marston
