Do not believe that possibly you can escape the reward of your action.

Too precious to ignore

You could probably get by with not doing much today. But then you would have wasted an entire unique and highly valuable day.

You could come up with some very plausible excuses for not taking action. But then you would have to settle for excuses when you could have had accomplishment and fulfillment.

You could avoid the possibility of disappointment and discomfort by hiding away from life. But then you would miss out on all the beautiful, enriching possibilities as well.

Choose instead to accept and experience the ups and downs of life as each moment unfolds. Decide to give your very best to the opportunity that is this day.

Focus on a truly meaningful goal and put forth the effort to make it happen. Take bold, effective steps in the direction of your dreams.

Life is far too precious to just ignore. Step forward, do what you know you can do, and live the richness of this beautiful day.

— Ralph Marston
