Today Is A New 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

The best laid plans don't always work out and there is no better example of this than in everyday life. All of us can relate to starting the day with a 'to do' list ready to be crossed off only to be waylaid by a myriad of other 'life stuff' that wasn't anticipated. It's a vicious cycle which ends with you adding the items from today, on to tomorrow's list.

That's why I love this quote. It's a gentle reminder that as long as you do your best with what you've been given you can feel at ease when you finish, no matter what did or didn't get crossed off your list.

~ Sasha
