Yours to keep

Today is worth putting everything you have into making it the best it can possibly be. Sure there are challenges, and in them you’ll find priceless opportunities. Yes, there will be setbacks. Let them serve to make you even more determined.

Today is a day that will never be again. Fill it with new experiences. Fill it with love, with learning, with action, with achievement. You cannot hold on to today. You can, however, use it to create positive value that will remain with you always.

Your hopes, your dreams, your burdens, your possibilities and limitations all converge on today. You have the golden opportunity to do with them what you’ve never done before, to take those things which have led you to this point and to mold something wonderful and magnificent from them.

Today is worth everything you can give it. The more you give to today, the more you put into this sparkling moment in time, the more your life will continue to benefit from those good and positive things you’ve done with it. Live today well, and its treasures will be yours to keep.

— Ralph Marston
