One day at a time please…

The successful person learns to live in the present only, but always headed toward next time. Live a day at a time & do a job at a time. Then go on a next time. That makes sense, But, unhappily, lots of people don’t do that. Instead, they live in the past, present, and future all at the same time. What an error to waste mental energy brooding over past events or worrying about problems that might develop at some future time and then again might not.
Never waste a moment on yesterdays. Finish every day and be done with it. You have done what you could. Tomorrow is a new day; begin it well & serenely and with too high a spirit to be cumbered with your old nonsense.

In Advice about Life, Advice on Letting Go on April 2, 2013 at 9:46 am

To let go isn’t to forget, not to think about, or ignore. It doesn’t leave feelings of anger, jealousy, or regret. Letting go isn’t about winning or losing. It’s not about pride and it’s not about how you appear, and it’s not obsessing or dwelling on the past. Letting go isn’t blocking memories or thinking sad thoughts, and doesn’t leave emptiness, hurt, or sadness. It’s not about giving in or giving up. Letting go isn’t about loss and it’s not about defeat. To let go is to cherish the memories, to overcome and move on. Letting go is learning and experiencing and growing. To let go is to be thankful for the experiences that made you laugh, made you cry, and made you grow. It’s about all that you have, all that you had, and all that you will soon gain. Letting go is having the courage to accept change, and the strength to keep moving.
