October 14th - The best preparation for tomorrow is today
Yesterday is gone. Tomorrow has not yet come. We have only today. Let us begin.
So many people long for a yesterday they thought was better than what they have today, but yesterday is done and never coming back. We have only today to do that which must be done and to try to enjoy every minute of it while it’s here. Every day is such a gift!
There are two days in every week which we should not worry,
Two days which should be kept free of fear and apprehension.
One of these days is Yesterday.
With it’s mistakes and cares.
It’s faults and blunders,
It’s 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 preformed;
We cannot erase a single word we sid.
Yessterday is gone.
The other day we should not worry about is Tomorrow.
With its possible adversities, its burdens. its larger promise.
Tomorrow is also beyond our immediate control.
Tomorrow the 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 leaves only one day - Today.
Any man can fight the battles of just one day.
It’s only when you and I add the burdens of those two awful eternities of yesterday and tomorrow, that we break down.
It is not the experience of today that drives men mad.
It is remorse or bitterness for something which happened yesterday
And the dread of what Tomorrow may bring.
Let us therefor, live but one day at a time.
We all feel down sometimes; like the pressures of the world are closing in on us. Once in a while, we need to be reminded…that everyone in the world suffers from heartbreaks and disillusions of life.
Pass this poem on to someone you care about and let them know you share their hurts and that they are not alone.
I hope your today is better than yesterday.
