Now is Your Moment

It is now, and now is different
Even though you may have experienced an overwhelming amout of disappointment in the past, the past is over
Perhaps you've failed again and again
Now is different
That was then and this is now
Now you have the opportunity to move forward
Now you can do what you've never been able to do before
Now you can follow through on the things you've been unable or unwilling to do in the past
Now is your moment to live
Now is the time to act
Now is when you can truly make a difference
Stand up, step forward and live!

Ralph Marston

I say this every morning before I leave the house. It's right on my dresser. It's the first thing I see when I sit down at my desk at work. It really means something to me and makes me feel better every time I say it. I'm ready to claim all the good things that I have not allowed myself to go for in the past. I've spent a lot of years being scared to take chances and always playing it safe. I'm slowly, but surely getting over that and realizing that it really is my moment. It's time for me to reach for the sky.

As I've grown into the woman I am, I believe we can LIVE life or watch it pass by. You're living it and I'm glad to be a part of your discoveries...

This is a great motivator...I actually had more courage and aggressiveness when I was younger..before I had a family and things to lose. I too have to learn to take chances again...To walk or step out on faith.
