Yesterday, Today and Tomorrow

Yesterday....Today.....Tomorrow  

 

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 its mistakes and cares, its faults and blunders, its aches and pains. Yesterday has passed 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.

 

The other day we should not worry about is tomorrow, with its possible adversaries, its burdens, its large promise and poor performance. Tomorrow is also beyond 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 as yet unborn.

 

This leaves only one day today. Any man can fight the battle of just one day. It is only when you and I add the burdens of those two awful eternities.

 

Yesterday and tomorrow, that we break down. 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 will bring.

 

Let us therefore live but one day at a time!
