History, despite its wrenching pain, cannot be unlived, but if faced with courage, need not be lived again.

Living with it

You’ll only live this day once, yet you will live with it for the rest of your life. Today you have the opportunity to take action, to make things happen, to create, to express yourself, to be with those you love, to experience the beauty that’s around you.

Yet once the day is done, it’s done. You can’t rewind and go back. You must get it right the first time.

The way you spend this day will have repercussions which will echo through your life for years. You have the opportunity right now to control whether you’ll look back on today with satisfaction or with regret.

So what will it be? That’s up to you. Today is here right now. It’s your opportunity to fill your life with value and meaning. Make it a day you can continue to live with and enjoy.

— Ralph Marston
