Live this day

Life has never before been the way it is now. This is your opportunity to add a new dimension, a new level of meaning, to your experience.

Even a small, simple thing can be the source of great new wonder. Even a modest action can make you more alive than you’ve ever been.

Watch with awe and gratitude as the highest branches of trees catch a fresh breeze. What beauty, what value, what insight can you give this moment in return?

A million possibilities sparkle right in front of you. Each one of them can add new substance to your life, to your world, to all of existence.

Take full measure of what you have, of what you can do, of how you can be. See the goodness that can come from the choices you make, the words you speak, the actions you take.

Look up with eyes of amazement, step forward with passion and purpose. And live this day as the magnificent treasure that it is.

— Ralph Marston
