There are two days in every week that we should not worry about. Two days that should be kept from fear and apprehension.

One 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. Nor can we erase a single word we have said. Yesterday is gone!

The other day we shouldn’t worry about is tomorrow, with its impossible adversaries. It’s burden, its hopeful promise and poor performance. Tomorrow is beyond our control.

Tomorrow’s sun will rise either in splendor or in clouds, but it will rise. But until it does, we have no stake in tomorrow, for it is yet unborn.


This leaves us only one day—TODAY! Any person can fight the battles of just one day. It is only when we add the burdens of 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 one day at a time.”
