Have no fear of perfection-you'll never reach it.
-- Salvadore Dali


Wednesday, November 3, 1999


Sit up straight. Lift your head up. Lift your eyes. Take a long, deep breath, and smile. Though things may be far from perfect for you, act like it’s a great day to be alive. Because it is.

Keep a smile on your face and in your voice. Put a spring in your step. Act like you would act if you were the most confident, successful, joyful person in your town. Speak to others in kind and positive terms. Think and speak to yourself the same way. Embrace the challenges and see their positive possibilities.

There is no need to delay, even for another moment, the fulfillment that life can bring. See the world around you for what it is, and know that it cannot bring you down. Live today as if it is the best day you could possibly imagine. And in doing that you make it so.

— Ralph Marston
