that is going on in the world, and even in our private lives, these profound words put
things in a different, yet simple perspective. There are days when everything seems
overwhelming and out of our control, but then a new day is born, with its new challenges,
and hopefully new solutions.
Yesterday, Today and Tomorrow
Category: Writing and Poetry
There are two days in every week that 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 which happened yesterday, and the dread of what tomorrow may
bring. Let us, therefore, live one day at a time.
