How many of us often convince ourselves that someday will be better than today? We wait for that "someday" and that it never actually arrive. We put ourselves in a loop where we constantly postpone our happiness and allow ourselves to be bothered by worries and problems of yesterdays. I guess it is time we come out of that loop, enjoy the moment, and focus on today. Here is an article entitled "Yesterday, Today, Tomorrow". 

YESTERDAY, TODAY, TOMORROW

Present Moment (Photo Credit priotime.com)
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 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.
t is not the experience of today that drives people mad.
It is the remorse or bitterness for something which happened yesterday and the dread of what tomorrow may bring.

Let us therefore live but one day at a time.

One of my favorite author-Richard Carlson once said, "When we're busy making other plans, our children are busy growing up, the people we love are moving away and dying, our bodies are getting out of shape, and our dreams are slipping away. In short, we miss out on life." I couldn't agree more.
