When you come to the end of your rope...tie a knot and hang on.

Here and now

Where you are is a great place to be. Because from where you are, you can go anywhere you decide to go. When you live in the past, you get stuck in a world that no longer exists. When you live in a fantasy of denial or wishful thinking, you sever your connection to the very reality that can move you forward.

Here and now is where you are. Here and now is where you can be your best. Here and now is full of opportunities and brimming with possibilities. Here and now your actions have consequences and you can control those consequences by wisely choosing those actions.

Here and now you have power, the power to change your life. You may not have chosen where you are right now. Yet that really doesn’t matter. What matters is what you choose to do now that you’re here.

You are in a great position right here, right now. As soon as you accept, acknowledge and appreciate where you are, you can begin to move to precisely where you would like to be. Make the most of your good fortune right here, right now.

— Ralph Marston
