A poem to live by.. not sure who wrote it.. it wasn't me!!

There are two days in every week about
Which we should not worry, two days which
Should be kept from fear and apprehension.
One of these day is yesterday, with its
Mistakes and care, 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. We
Cannot erase a single word we said.
Yesterday is gone beyond recall.

Do I still worry bout what happened yesterday?

The other day we should not worry about is
Tomorrow, with its possible adversities, its
Burdens, its large promise and perhaps its
Poor performance. Tomorrow is also beyond
Our immediate control. Tomorrow’s sun will
Rise, whether in splendor or behind a mask of
Clouds, but it will rise. Until it does, we have
No stake in tomorrow, for it is as yet unborn.

Do I still worry too much about tomorrow?

This leaves only one day - today. Anyone
Can fight the battles of just one day. It is only
When you and I add
Annapurna, Nepal Annapurna, Nepal Annapurna, Nepal

Amit and I trekking in Nepal
the burden of those two
Awful eternities, yesterday and tomorrow,
That we break down.

It is not the experience of today that drives
Us mad. It is the remorse or bitterness for
Something which happened yesterday or the
Dread of what tomorrow may bring. Let us
Therefore do our best to live but one day at a
Time.

Am I living one day at a time?
