Now you’re here

Stop for a moment and consider how great it is to be alive. Think of the beautiful, abundant universe that surrounds you. Reflect on the wealth of possibilities in your life. Think of the people who care about you. Sure, you have problems. But what joy would there be if you had no challenges?

Right now, take a deep breath and feel how good it is to be alive, to be creative, to be capable of living each moment with as much joy as you choose to experience. Today is a magnificent day to be alive. Right now you have the opportunity to make a difference, in your own life, in the lives of others, in the world.

You’ve come a long way to arrive at today. All the effort you’ve put into life thus far, has brought you to this place, this time. All the things you’ve learned, all your experiences, all the people you know, all the actions you’ve taken, have culminated in today. Now that it’s here, you finally have the chance to live this day for all it’s worth.

— Ralph Marston
