A New Day

Temperance 9/10/19

Whatever happened yesterday cannot be changed. Too many times the sun has gone down, and I was left wondering what happened. Or more often than not, what didn’t happen. The day got away from me. Time was squandered, and I would go to bed in disgust having wasted another opportunity.

But as a new day dawns, optimism abounds. We are given another chance to make progress. Yesterday is gone, but today, bright with its hopes and dreams, is here now. We can choose to make the most of it. We can redeem ourselves from our past carelessness, or we can let another day be lost forever. We will only get so many of these opportunities. What will you do?

With the new day comes new strengths and new thoughts. –Eleanor Roosevelt
