There are two days in every week about
which we should not worry,
two days which should be kept free from fear
One of these days is Yesterday with all 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.
is gone forever.
The other day we should not worry about is
with all its possible adversities, its burdens,
promise and its poor performance;
Tomorrow is also beyond our immediate
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
for it is yet to be born.
This leaves only one day,
Any person can fight the battle of just one day.
It is when
you and I add the burdens of those two awful eternities
Tomorrow that we break down.
It is not the experience of Today
that drives a person mad,
it is the remorse or bitterness of something
which happened Yesterday
and the dread of what Tomorrow may bring.
Let us, therefore, Live but one day at a time.
