Chapter 2, Page 24, Book 20

Every day is a new beginning.  Take a deep breath and start again.

February 24th - start again, get rid of yesterday

Take a deep breath, pick yourself up , dust yourself off, and start all over again.

Frank Sinatra

Each day we are given a gift; the opportunity to start again, to make today better than if was yesterday.  No matter what is happening in your life, no matter if you have a hundred reasons to cry.  choose to remember that you also have a thousand reasons to smile.

Sometimes we start a day with the previous day still in our minds. We think about the mistakes we made, how things went wrong and how bad we felt about it.  It’s no wonder it becomes difficult to focus on the current day.  So it’s important to leave the past behind.  Always start your new day fresh without thinking of yesterday.  Think of it as closing a door, and then starting your new day fresh.

Yesterday is gone.  It no longer has any power over you unless you let it.You have to choose to restart.  Choose to shake off  yesterday and make room for today. We have to remind ourselves that what was is not what is and believe in the power of today— twenty-four hours of new.

Finish each day and be done with it.  You have done what you could.

Ralph Waldo Emerson

Yesterday is gone, the future is not known, but today is a gift that is why it's called the present.
