You cannot now be anywhere other than in this moment. Yet you can transform this very moment into whatever kind of experience you wish to live.
You cannot stop the sun from setting. Yet you can prepare yourself to make the very most of the new day that comes when the sun surely rises again.
You cannot stop the years from passing. Yet you can fill each one of those years with a life that's rich in meaning.
There are many things beyond your control. Yet you can live true to your most authentic purpose no matter what may come.
You cannot be sure of what the future will bring. Yet you can choose right now, and always, to continue bringing your own unique beauty to life.
