In case you’re feeling like this holiday season is slipping by too fast or not going “according to plan,” I found the poem below to helped me press the reset button.
I hope it speaks to you too.
“Today is an opportunity to do something positive. Today’s your chance to add new value to your life and to your world.
Make the commitment to fill this day with meaningful richness and purposeful effort. This is your day to live, so do so with vigor and enthusiasm. Live today in such a way that tomorrow you will have no regrets.
Work with discipline and focus to transform the possibilities into real, lasting value. Rise above the petty complaints, frustrations and inconveniences. This is your day to give your best to what truly matters.
Today, you have good fortune to play a positive and active role in your own life. Fulfill that role with joy, gratitude, compassion, persistence and love.
The opportunity of this day has already been delivered to you. Graciously except and embrace it, and make it into something magnificent.” -Ralph Marston
Food for thought:
Remember, all we have is today.
What if we lived every day as this poem offers? Joyful, grateful and compassionate. How simple and beautiful that would be…
