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 these days is Yesterday with all 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; we cannot erase a single word
we said. Yesterday is gone forever.
The other day we should not worry about is Tomorrow with all
its possible adversities, its burdens, its large promise and
its poor performance; Tomorrow is also 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 to be born.
This leaves only one day, Today. Any person can fight
the battle of just one day. It is when you and I add
the burdens of those two awful eternity's Yesterday and
Tomorrow that we break down.
It is not the experience of Today that drives a person mad,
it is the remorse or bitterness of something which
happened Yesterday and the dread of what Tomorrow may bring.
Let us, therefore; live but one day at a time
