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 care and mistakes, its faults and blunders, its pains and heart-aches. Yesterday had 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 large promise and its poor performance, Its possible adversities and its burdens. Tomorrow is beyond our earthly control. Tomorrow’s sun will rise either in spender 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. Anyone can fight a battle for just one day. It is only when you and I add the burdens of those two frightful eternities, Yesterday and Tomorrow, that we break down and falter.
It is not the experiences of Today which drive men mad; it is the bitterness of remorse for something which happened Yesterday and the dreaded thought of what Tomorrow may bring.
LET US THEREFORE LIVE BUT ONE DAY AT A TIME.
