Make tomorrow, today.

There was a man who waited his entire life to take a trip out west. He’d dreamed of traveling across the plains on horseback and hiking the mountains with sightings of wildlife all around him.

No matter how much time you’ve wasted in the past, you still have an entire tomorrow.” – Denis Waitley
