Promise of a new Day

You had better live your best and act your best and think your best today; for today is the sure preparation for tomorrow and all the other tomorrows that follow. —Harriet Marineau—

What’s done is done. What’s been said is said. We can’t undo the mistakes of yesterday. And occasionally they create barriers blocking us today. However, we can make sure that our behavior today doesn’t contribute to unnecessary problems for tomorrow. A negative attitude towards other people and towards life’s circumstances become habitual. Fortunately, a positive attitude does as well. The choice rests with each of us to respond in ways fitting to the preferred attitude. How much easier all situations are when we are respectful, hopeful, and interested. Likewise, the trivial matter can become a major catastrophe when we struggle unnecessarily and with carping egos. We make the world we find, at home, at work, and at play. Today is mine to make. Let me choose my attitude with care.
