"This is the first day of the rest of your life."
"One day at a time."
"Live in the moment."
"Be here, now."
But then, just because these words are so plain and seemingly empty, doesn't mean they aren't true. Maybe they are so yawn-inducing and mind-fogging because they are true. And they are the types of expressions you can use to live. You can actually base your life on such simple dreck!
