Today. The Only Day.


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 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.

The other day we should not worry about is
tomorrow.
With its possible adversities, Its burdens,
Its large promise
and 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 unborn.
 

This just leaves only one day . . . Today.
 

Any person
can fight the battles of just one day.
It is only 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 people 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.
