Fill this moment

This moment will pass by quickly. Yet before it goes, you can make it golden. You can sit there and watch this moment become forever lost. Or you can put yourself into this moment and make it forever yours.

This is a moment waiting to be lived. Imagine what can happen when you fill it with love, commitment, courage, and focused effort.

It is just a moment. And yet in this moment is truly everything you are, and the birth of everything you can become. If you waste this moment, you waste the most precious things you have. Instead, fill this moment, and the next and the next, with the best you can be, and there is no limit to what it can bring you.

This moment is yours to use, but only if you use it now, while it’s here. Fill it with value and meaning before you send it on its way.

— Ralph Marston
