Today is when

In the vast entirety of forever, today will only happen once. Now is your single chance to get the most from it and more importantly, give the most to it.

Today is far from perfect. Yet as difficult and inconvenient and frustrating as it may be, you can fill it with much richness and meaningful living.

Today encompasses all that exists in the whole universe. Within its broad boundaries you’ll connect with fascinating people, powerful possibilities, unique experiences, love, beauty, and more.

Today might feel like many other days, making it easy to convince yourself you’ll get the chance to live it again. But don’t let today’s familiarity cause you to put off living it, for if you ever try to reclaim this day later it will be long gone.

Fortunately, right this minute you are alive, aware, well informed and highly motivated to live this day with the best you have. In fact, you’ve already started to do so and you can accomplish even more with every passing hour.

Today is when you are, today is when you can, today is when you will. Imagine the best and then make it happen, today.

— Ralph Marston
