Each day . . .

“Finish each day and be done with it. You have done what you could; some blunders and absurdities have crept in; forget them as soon as you can. Tomorrow is a new day; you shall begin it serenely and with too high a spirit to be encumbered with your old nonsense.” ~ Emerson

  2. I like the photo that goes with the quote – the ramshackle house that needs attention – no stress, it can wait until tomorrow.
    you have a talent for matching the images with the words.

    1. Thanks Elizabeth. Sometimes we move everything into that urgent and important box and place undue stress upon our selves. There are things that are important but don’t have to be done today as they may require some additional thinking and planning. Be well, Bill
