Yesterday, today and tomorrow

By
Services for Real Estate Pros with Sharon Lee's Virtual Assistance

picThere 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 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.

The other day we should not worry about is tomorrow. With its possible adversities, Its burdens, Its large promise and 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 unborn.

This just leaves only one day... Today. Any person can fight the battles of just one day. It is only when you and I add the burdens of those two awful eternity's - yesterday and tomorrow that we break down. It is not the experience of today that drives people mad. It is the remorse of bitterness for something which happened yesterday and the dread of what tomorrow may bring

Let us therefore live but one day at a time.

Thanks for the reminder. Mike Ditka said the two most useless days are yesterday and tomorrow.

Great post; people get so wrapped up in tomorrow they never take time out to live for the day. Tomorrow comes soon enough; the time today we will never get back. Happy New Year.

Sharon:  Wonderful words of wisdom.  Why worry about the past or future when we are living in today.

Sharon - That's a gorgeous picture to illustrate your post.  I am one of those people who hates Mondays so bad, that they begin screwing up Sundays starting around 2:00 pm in the afternoon.  I need to work on that not worrying bit.
