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;
All the money in the world cannot bring back Yesterday;
Yesterday has passed forever beyond our control;
We cannot undo a single act that 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, or poor performance;
Tomorrow is also beyond our immediate control.
Tomorrow’s sun will rise, either in spendour 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 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 these two eternities,
Yesterday and Tomorrow,
That we break down.
It is not the experience of Today that drives people mad,
It is the remorse or bitterness of something that happened Yesterday,
And the dread of what Tomorrow may bring.
Let us therefore live but one day at a time.
