Life is what happens to you while you are busy making other plans.
-- John Lennon


Thursday, December 31, 1998


Someday you’ll discover that living brings more fulfillment than buying. Someday you’ll realize that each day is a golden treasure, far too precious to be wasted pursuing someone else’s idea of happiness.

Someday you’ll discover that you already have enough, and will spend your time being rather than getting. Someday you’ll understand the futility of taking shortcuts, and will hunger for the solid nourishment of living with integrity. Someday you’ll experience the magnificent abundance which comes from giving of yourself. Someday you’ll live each moment with purpose and passion.

That someday is coming. There’s nothing stopping it but you. Someday life will be filled with joy and meaning. That someday can be today. Live it, and it is yours.

— Ralph Marston
