Let us not look back in anger or forward in fear, but around in awareness.

This is your day

Life happens today. Whether you’re prepared for it or not, this day is here for you to live.

A time will come when you’ll realize the value of what you have right now. The sooner that realization comes, the better.

This is probably not what you would envision as your ideal day. Yet this is the day you have, the only one you can currently work with.

You could wish for and wait for a better situation. Or you could go ahead and make good use of the situation as it is.

What you have today is the opportunity to make progress. That opportunity does not depend on what has already happened, but rather on what you do about it now.

This is your day to live, to act, to learn, to experience. Do so now, as fully and richly as you are able.

— Ralph Marston
