So is cheerfulness, or a good temper, the more it is spent, the more remains.

You still have today

Imagine it is tomorrow, you are looking back on today, and ask yourself this. What do you regret not doing?

Whatever it is, you have just given yourself the chance to avoid that regret. Because you still have today, and you can act today to avoid tomorrow’s regrets.

Too often we fail to realize how valuable something is until it is gone forever. Take this opportunity to remind yourself how valuable today is, while you still have it.

Even though this day is not perfect, there is plenty you can do with it. Even though there are frustrations, problems and disappointments, there are also a whole lot of positive possibilities.

You still have today, and with it you have the ability to solve the problems, to transcend the disappointments and to experience new joys. You can learn, laugh, love and live fully.

Today, while you still have it, you can make a difference in the way your life unfolds. Avoid the regrets of tomorrow by plunging fully into life and into action today.

— Ralph Marston
