None are so empty as those who are full of themselves.

Here and now

You have right now. Do everything you can to treasure it, make full use of it, and live it with all you are.

What has happened has happened. Anger, frustration, and complaints about it will only contaminate the present with echoes of a past that cannot be changed.

Focus your thoughts on the reality of the good you can do here and now. Identify a worthy, desirable possibility and go cheerfully to work.

See if you can let go of the doubts and worries about what might or might not happen. Unlock energy for making the most of all that is here and now.

Enjoy the feeling of being effective in real time, in the real world. Watch with satisfaction as you exercise purposeful control over your thoughts and actions.

Understand and appreciate the great treasures that can be forged from life in the present moment. Know the distinct joy of making that happen, right here, right now.

— Ralph Marston
