If you choose not to make the very most of this day, then one day you’ll look back and regret it. One day you’ll look back on today, and wonder why you were so afraid to take action.
One day you’ll look back on today, and wonder why you let so many of life’s minor inconveniences get you down. One day you’ll look back, and wonder why you couldn’t have been a little more disciplined, a little more focused.
What would you regret not doing, if you could look back on today from ten years in the future? Now is your chance to avoid that stinging regret.
What would you consider important about today, looking back? What opportunities would be evident then, that might be going unappreciated today?
A life of value and meaning is something you build over time, not a jackpot that you win through luck or cunning. Today is an opportunity to build that life you want, an opportunity that will not come again.
Though it is impossible to know what the future will bring, one thing is certain. You’ll never regret making the most of the day that you have right now.

Super! Thanks so much, Carol. I might need to bump this up each morning! 🙂August 10, 2012 at 1:30 pm#106378AnonymousInactive
For me, That is one important part of being sober, is that i can wake up the next morning and not have regrets, and if i do, they came from a conscious decision, not one made by an induced mind, therefore i know if i stay in recovery, my days are productive and the next day is mine to enjoy..or at least not regret..August 11, 2012 at 1:26 am#106375AnonymousInactive
