An idea is a feat of association, and the height of it is a good metaphor.

The day you have

This is the day you have, this is the circumstance you’re in. So be good with it, be good to it, and create new goodness from it all.

Don’t overthink it or worry it into oblivion. Live it, gratefully, graciously, with a commitment to give it your best.

Recall a particularly joyful time you’ve known. Feel that joy as it glows in your memory, and let it radiate freely into the here and now.

Inspire and encourage yourself to act with positive purpose and the highest standards. But don’t beat yourself up if you fall a little short.

This is the day you have, and you can fill it with the unique substance that is your life. Feel good about your prospects, then justify that positive feeling with the things you actually do.

Make life good all over again by the way you choose to see it and to live it. This is the day you have, and your chance to amaze yourself with all the great things you can do.

— Ralph Marston
