"Finish every day and be done with it.
You have done what you could.
Some blunders and absurdities
no doubt have crept in;
forget them as soon as you can.
Tomorrow is a new day;
begin it well and serenely
and with too high a spirit
to be cumbered with
your old nonsense.
This day is all that is
good and fair.
It is too dear,
with its hopes and invitations,
to waste a moment on yesterdays," by Ralph Waldo Emerson,
These words create a good way to look at each day. The old year has past. What can we learn from it? By taking a pondering at the good and the bad of the past, we can be aware of things that worked and things that we should have done differently. Being aware helps us to make positive changes in the way we look at the future. Don't spend too much time looking back at the past, though, as that can hold us there. It is also unwise to kick ourselves for the mistakes of our past. The past is where it is and where it belongs--in the past. Leave it there.
Each new day is a gift from God. It is up to us what we do with it, how we approach it, and what we take from it. To treat each day with a new light and new hope is a good way to experience life. Each day is special and we should take advantage of every hour, every minute, yes, even every second that it holds. Treat others with kindness, in the way that you would like to be treated, and accomplish what you can. When the day is through, be thankful for the good things that occurred and let the rest go.
Three hundred and sixty-four more days await us in the year of 2013. What do you plan to do with them?
