Live but one day at a time...

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 performed;
we cannot erase a single word we said.
Yesterday is gone forever.

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, Today.
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.

With Love, AmmaNana
