Yesterday, Today and Tomorrow

I'm finally seeing the tail end of the bug I caught last week, but my head still seems to be too fogged up to think clearly. This will not, however, stop me from getting back up and writing again!

I do apologize for not having as many posts lately - I will correct that as of now!

When it comes to the quote I pick every Monday, I choose one that is resonating with me at that particular moment so that everything I write in the post is basically a stream of consciousness then and there. The one that is hitting me today my favourite reading from AA meetings. It doesn't preach anything, so fear not. It's just stating a simple fact and really hits the point home for me. I hope I'm not breaking any AA rules by posting it here as I think it's something that everyone should read - not just people in recovery.

May you have a wonderful day and week, everyone!


There are two days in every week we should not worry about, two days that should be kept free from fear and apprehension.

One 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. Nor can we erase a single word we've said - yesterday is gone.

The other day we shouldn't worry about is tomorrow, with its possible adversities, its burdens, its large promise and poor performance.

Tomorrow is beyond our control.

Tomorrow's sun will rise either in splendour or behind a mask of clouds, but it will rise. And until it does,we have no stake in tomorrow, for it is yet unborn.

This leaves only one day - today. Any person can fight the battles of just one day. It is only when we add the burdens of yesterday and tomorrow that we break down.

It is not the experience of today that drives people mad - it is the remorse of bitterness for something that happened yesterday, and the dread of what tomorrow may bring.

Let us, therefore, live one day at a time!
