This great day

No matter what has happened so far, today has the potential to be great. Even though it may have gotten off to a rough start, you still have the opportunity to make this day count in the plus column. Even if you find yourself at five minutes to midnight, with the day drawing quickly to a close, there is still something you can do to make sure that you’ve moved your life forward today.

Challenge yourself to find that something. Challenge yourself to do it. If you’re in the middle of a difficult day, that’s all the more reason to turn it around and make it great.

It’s never too late to make it a great day. In fact, the more problems and difficulties there are, the more opportunities you have for making a positive difference.

Right now, while you have it, is the time to make this day count for something. Fill it with positive thoughts and effective actions. Live it with love, with kindness, with gratitude and with courage. Decide that each moment will be a blessing and it will be.

You can do it. You can make today great. You’re smarter and more experienced than ever before, so put your good fortune to use. Today is a fabulous day to be alive. So by all means, put a smile on your face, a bounce in your step, and be alive!
