a little regret but more grateful

Will you one day look back on today and wonder why you were so afraid to take action?

Will you look back one day and not be able to understand why you let so many of life’s
trivial, minor inconveniences get you down and hold you back in such a major way?

Or will you look back on this day and be forever thankful for the way you spent
it and the value you created by making full use of the time available?

Will you look back fondly and see this day as a positive turning point that
launched you toward fulfillment of your most treasured dreams?

Today can eventually become a source of regret or it can become a
source of continuing value. The way it goes depends entirely on
how you live the moments and hours that are
yours right now in this day.

Time is the raw material for success and achievement,
and time is what you have this very day.
The time you need to achieve
the life of your dreams is coming
to you even now.

No matter what has come before or in what
circumstances you find yourself,
there is one thing you can
always do.

You can make the very most of whatever
you have, of wherever you find
yourself, of the time
that is available for
you to use.

Do that today,
tomorrow,
the next day
and the next,
and you’ll have very little
to regret
and
much for which to be grateful.

Ralph Marston

Nobody can go back and start a new begining, but anyone can start today and make a new begining.
