Why This Moment Counts Beyond All Others!

Most of us think we have all the time in the world.  If we can’t get to something today, there's always tomorrow.  There’s a good reason for this; at the end of the day, you have to say the day is done, tomorrow is another day, which is all true.  However, here’s an invitation: what if you could wake up each morning, not with a sigh, but with anticipation.
