This could be your last day (7/31/14)

Live this day as if it will be your last.…Forget yesterday’s defeats, and ignore the problems of tomorrow. This is it.…All you have. Make it the best day of your year. The saddest words you can ever utter are, “If I had my life to live over again…” Take the baton, now. Run with it! This is your day!

 
As difficult as it may be, you can handle today’s load, one task at a time, and make progress toward your goals. It is only when you can spend countess and tearful hours reliving your past mistakes, or worrying about the terrible things that might happen tomorrow, that you let this precious day, which is all you have, slip away.
 
Today is your day, the only day you have, that day in which you can show the world that you can make a contribution that matters. What your part may signify in the great whole of life you may never understand, but you are still here to play it, and now is your time.”
