Fill your future

Is there something you wish you had done earlier? Although you can’t go back to the past and get it done, you can take a valuable lesson from it.

Tomorrow, you may very well be wishing that you had done some particular thing today. Fortunately, you still have the opportunity to do it.

Looking ahead to next month, or next year, what actions will you wish you had already taken? Now is your chance to change each of them from a future wish into present reality.

Today, with your actions, you can make those future wishes come true. Today, you can avoid the painful regrets that would otherwise be headed your way.

What once seemed like a distant future has already come and gone. What you now consider to be the future is fast approaching, and can benefit greatly from what you choose to do with this day.

What can you do today that you’ll soon thank yourself for doing? Instead of empty wishes and painful regrets, fill your future with sincere gratitude for what you’re doing with right now.
