Once

“Today only happens once — Make it amazing.”

I saw the little sign at a craft show Sunday and had to have it — especially when I saw the crafter only wanted 5 bucks for it. The message is priceless.

Today only happens once — make it amazing. Don’t bog down with what could be better or what went wrong yesterday. You’re only going to experience this day once, so concentrate on making it memorable (in a good way, of course).

Why stop there? This lifetime only happens once. Some people believe in reincarnation and new chances to get it right, but even if you do, this particular lifetime only happens once. So make it amazing. Take that chance. Reach for that star.

The ride will be worth it. And you get a new one every day — Amazing!
