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

As it should be

Today is as it should be. Rather than fighting against it, live it. Instead of denying what is, focus on what you can be. There is a reason why those things that make up this moment have come to be. Something led to your difficulties, something caused your joys.

Experience this moment and know that by accepting it as it is, you put yourself in a position to make the most of what can be. By acknowledging the fact that some specific set of thoughts and actions brought you to this point, you begin to harness and direct those thoughts and actions which can lead you to precisely where you desire to go.

Today is what it is, and within that reality lives a universe of possibilities from which you have the power to choose the absolute best you can imagine. That’s the way it is, and it is truly magnificent.

— Ralph Marston
