“Finish each day and be done with it. You have done what you could. Some blunders and absurdities no doubt 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 encumbered with your old nonsense.” – Ralph Waldo Emerson

Bad days are hard to not carry on to the next day. But why let something in the past grate on your energy, happiness and mood when all is said and done? Letting go of yesterday doesn’t mean you’ve given up or given in. It means you’re above all the bologna that life and other people have thrown at you.

If you’ve made some terrible, unforgivable mistake, then concentrate on making a positive effort to fix the wrongs tomorrow. If you can’t make things right, you’ll have to let time take its course. It hurts, and it can cause seemingly endless anxiety. Just know that the universe has a mysterious, serendipitous way of untangling the inevitable knots in our lives. Be proactive if and when you can. Be patient otherwise.

When tomorrow comes, concern yourself with something so positive that yesterday is but an afterthought. Take a few moments to remind yourself what is important in life, and try to count your blessings. Let yourself smile. Send out positive vibes and acknowledge every ray of sunshine, kind word and opportunity to laugh. To take these things for granted would be a waste of chances to feel better.

To a happy today and a happier tomorrow,

–SJ
