Wake at dawn with a winged heart and give thanks for another day of loving.

Right now

What can you do right now, today, this very moment? How can you take action to make a difference, not “someday", not when conditions are perfect, but right this minute?

You may have a long way to go, and the best way to get there is to take the first step. The first few steps will be small. They will not get you very far. Yet if you keep taking them, you’ll soon figure out how to move faster. And by that time you’ll be well on your way.

Unfavorable conditions will magically improve, when you take action in spite of them. Conditions are never perfect, so don’t waste your time waiting for them to be. Go ahead and get started. Do what needs to be done.

In this very moment lies the seed for your entire future. What can you do right now, to nourish it and start it growing?

— Ralph Marston
