Today, I will delete from my journal two days: Yesterday and Tomorrow. Yesterday was to learn from and Tomorrow...... well that will be the consequence of what I can do today.

Today, I will face life with the sure knowledge that this day will never return.

Today, is the last opportunity I have to live intensely, as no one can assure me that I will see tomorrow's sunrise.

Today, I will be brave enough not to let any opportunity pass me by, my only alternative is to succeed.
Today, I will invest my most valuable resource: my time in the most transcendental work: my life...
Today, I will spend each minute passionately, to make today a different and unique day in my life.

Today, I will defy every obstacle that appears on my way, trusting I will succeed.

Today, I will resist pessimism, and will conquer the world with a smile and a positive attitude of always expecting the best.

Today, I will make of every ordinary task a sublime expression,
Today, I will have my feet on the ground understanding reality and the stars' gaze, and thus will invent my future.

Today, I will take the time to be happy and will leave my footprints and my presence in the hearts of others, not just in the sands of time.


Today, I invite you to begin a new season where we can dream that everything we undertake is possible and we fulfill that dream, with joy and dignity.


Today, why not perform a random act of kindness...?

And, if there are those that you love, tell them, you don't know when it might be your last opportunity. Tell them, as I have just

Your "Jo was here" logo at the bottom of each post takes on a whole new meaning when I don't hear from you for almost 2 months. I'm so glad you have written something. You must have had your ears burning, because I was thinking about you and wondering why you hadn't written in so long. I know how our lives get busy and things happen that keep us devoted to other places and people but I, for one, am so glad to hear from you.Hope all is well. Now I will read your post again. It's lovely.
Keep in touch, Love, Elly Mae
