Today and Tomorrow
There are two days in every
week we should not worry about, two days that should be kept free
from fear and apprehension.
One is yesterday, with its mistakes and cares, its faults and blunders,
its aches and pains. Yesterday has passed, forever beyond our control.
All the money in the world cannot bring back yesterday. We cannot
undo a single act we performed. Nor can we erase a single word we've
said - yesterday is gone.
The other day we shouldn't worry about is tomorrow, with its impossible
adversaries, its burden, its hopeful promise and poor performance.
Tomorrow is beyond our control.
Tomorrow's sun will rise either in splendor or behind a mask of
clouds - but it will rise. And until it does, we have no stake in
tomorrow, for it is yet unborn.
This leaves only one day - today. Any person can fight the battles
of just one day. It is only when we add the burdens of yesterday
and tomorrow that we break down.
It is not the experience of today that drives people mad - it is
the remorse of bitterness for something that happened yesterday,
and the dread of what tomorrow may bring. Let us, therefore,
live one day at a time!
