Today is the Very First Day
Of the Rest of My Life


This is the beginning of a new day.

I have been given this day to use as I will.

I can waste it...or use it for good,

but what I do today is important,

because I am exchanging a day of my life for it!

When tomorrow comes,

this day will be gone forever,

leaving in its place something

that I have traded for it.

I want it to be gain, and not loss;

good and not evil;

success and not failure;

in order that I shall not regret

this price that I have paid for it.

I will try just for today,

for you never fail

until you stop trying.
