The Road Ahead

Yesterday is gone.
Tomorrow will be here soon enough.
Today is your chance 
explore a new path.
The road to better health, 
is one that is paved by choice.
One moment at a time.
Every morning is an opportunity
to start fresh.
Breathe deep,
look toward the dawn 
of a new day.
Look away from yesterday.

Leave behind what is not useful 
to you for this day;
 These are attitudes which will hold you back
on your journey.
The only thing you need for the road ahead 
is a smile of anticipation. 
All else will be provided, 
at the proper time. 
Step lively, firmly and confidently.
Your destiny awaits you
