I found this while going through some things of mine and realized just how true it is for all of us. For those of us that have been dealing with this for awhile, we occasionally need to remind ourselves, and for those of you that are still trying to come to terms with all that is going on, it is some of the best advice you could ever recieve.
There are two days in every week about which we should not worry, two days which should be
kept free from fear and apprehension.
One of those days is YESTERDAY with its mistakes and cares, its faults and blunders, its
aches and pains. YESTERDAY has passed forever beyond your control.
All the money in the world cannot bring back YESTERDAY. We cannot undo a single act we
performed: we cannot erase a single word we said. YESTERDAY is gone.
The other day we should not worry about is TOMORROW with its possible adversities, its
burdens, its large promise and poor performance. TOMORROW is beyond our immediate control.
TOMORROW'S sun will rise, either in splendor or behind a mask of clouds - but it will rise.
Until it does, we have no stake in TOMORROW, for it is yet unborn.
This leaves only one day - TODAY. Any man can fight the battle of just one day. It is only when
you add the burdens of those two awful eternities - YESTERDAY and TOMORROW - that we break
It is not the experience of TODAY that drives men mad - it is the remorse or bitterness for
something which happened YESTERDAY and the dread of what TOMORROW may bring.
LET US THEREFORE LIVE BUT ONE DAY AT A TIME.
The happiness of your life depends on your TODAY.
