Anyone can live sweetly, patiently, loving, purely, till the sun goes down. This is all that life really means & requires of us. Let’s be content to live the only time we can possibly live. From now till bedtime, anyone can carry his burden however hard until nightfall. Anyone can do his work however hard for one day. We are standing at this very second at the meeting point of two eternities which are the past and the future; we can’t possibly live in either of the eternities, again trying to do so we can wreck both our bodies and our minds. Everyday is a new life to a wise man. If only we can learn to forget the yesterdays & not to think of the tomorrows, one day at a time . . . life would be so comfortable for us. It’s a tragedy trying to put off living by dreaming of some magic in the future. This future won’t be as bright if we don’t figure out & work it out in the present. Life is in the living. Today is surely our only sure possession. Today well lived will make yesterday a dream of happiness & every tomorrow a vision of hope. If you succeed in overcoming your fears, you will be happy and fairly successful and have a lot of enthusiasm and love for life.
One day at a time.
