Today I will delete from my diary

two days: yesterday and tomorrow

Yesterday was to learn

and tomorrow will be the consequence

of what I can do today.

Today I will face life
with the conviction that this day
will not ever return.

Today is the last opportunity
I have to live intensely,
as no one can assure me
that I will see tomorrow's sunrise.

Today I will be brave enough
not to let any opportunity pass me by,
my only alternative is to succeed.

Today I will invest

my most valuable resource:my time,

in the most trascendental work:
my life;

I will spend each minute
passionately to make
of today a different
and unique day in my life.

Today I will defy every obstacule
that appears on my way trusting

I will succeed.

Today I will resist

pesimism and will conquer

the world with a smile,
with the positive attitude

of expecting always the best.

Today I will make of every ordinary task
a sublime expression,

Today I will have my feet on the ground

understanding reality

and the stars' gaze

to invent my future.

Today I will take the time to be happy
and will leave my footprints and my presence

in the hearts of others.

Today, I invite you to begin a new season

where we can dream

that everything we undertake is possible

and we fulfil it,

with joy and dignity.


Have a good day

and a better one tomorrow!
