All We Can Do

They say there are two days you should never worry about: yesterday and tomorrow.

I think they’re right, although you’d never know I believe it.

I find myself worrying about things I can’t control. Some I can, yes, but the ones I can’t are the ones that keep me up at night…unnecessarily. You’d think I’d have learned by now that sleep lost to that which is out of my hands is uncalled for, but apparently I haven’t.

With every toss and turn, I am no closer to redoing the past. I never will be.

Each moment I stare at the ceiling in a dark room only adds up to hours lost — and it doesn’t mean I can use those hours to magically fast forward through a day that’s going to be a doozy.

All we can do is all we can do. It’s been that way since the dawn of time, and it will continue to be that day — regardless if how many technological advancements we make.

Tonight I am determined to leave the day behind when I rest my head on my pillow, and to worry about tomorrow only once it becomes “today.” Living in the moment is one of the hardest things to do, but releasing the worry of things out of our control will ease the mind and soothe the heart.

I am thankful for today, thank yesterday for its lessons and wish the best for tomorrow.
