The power in the now.

My best self is now –
Not when I was five pounds lighter
Not when I had good grades
Not when I had time alone to myself
Not when I completed my workout
Not when I was at the top of my game.

My best self is now –
This is when I can make a choice, and do
This is when I can affect change, and take that first step
This is when I will not just recall a laugh, I will feel it
This is when I make great moments, not just dream them
This is when I can truly savor, not just be.

My best self is now –
Not tomorrow, not way back when
Not when I was young and carefree
Not when I feel better, or have more to give
There is a power in today
The power in the now, where I live.
