A helpful reminder (when you wish you’d done things differently)

“Finish every day and be done with it.

You have done what you could.

Some blunders and absurdities

no doubt have crept in; 

forget them as soon as you can –

Tomorrow is a new day;

begin it well and serenely

and with too high a spirit

to be cumbered with 

your old nonsense.

This day is all that is

good and fair.

It is too dear,

with its hopes and invitations,

to waste a moment on yesterdays.”

                                          Ralph Waldo Emerson
