Yesterday, Today & Tomorrow

There are two days in every week about which we should not worry; two days should be kept free from fear and apprehension.

One of these days is Yesterday, with its mistakes and cares, faults and blunders, 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 said. Yesterday is gone.

The other day we should not worry about is Tomorrow, with its possible adversities, burdens, immense promise, and poor performance. Tomorrow is also beyond our immediate control.

Tomorrow's sun will rise, either in splendor or behind an ask of clouds - but it will increase. Until it does, we have no stake in Tomorrow, for it is yet unborn.

This leaves only one day - Today. Anyone can fight the battles of just one day; it is only when you or 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 of bitterness for something which happened Yesterday and the dread of what Tomorrow may bring. Let us, therefore, live but One Day at a Time.
