Two Days Without Worry


--by warmth, posted Jul 26, 2007
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.

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, 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.

LIVE EVERY MOMENT POSITIVELY,
HELPING OTHERS AS IT WILL BE REPAID
IN FULL AS IT WAS PAID WITH
A FULL GLASS OF MILK YEARS AHEAD.

I mean nothing can bring back what is gone. But something we should remember sometimes that things which goes we should learn about them. I know it won't come back again and we can't do anything about it but let us talk positivley that we can change ourselves the other day and that's what we should do. Not to stop by making one mistake and saying that we can't continue because we've done something which can't be fixed. This Is great what you said and how you expressed it. Well I' am with you about everything you said. May GOD Keep You Always Happy...!!!
