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 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 cannot erase a single word we said.
Yesterday is gone forever.
The other day we should not
worry about is Tomorrow
with all its possible adversities, its burdens, its large promise,
and its poor performance;
Tomorrow is also beyond our immediate control.
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 Tomorrow,
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
Yesterday and 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.
