Finish each day and be done with it. You have done what you could. Some blunders and absurdities no doubt 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.”
― Ralph Waldo Emerson

I love this Emerson quote! My cousin Kat shared it with me during our Nashville trip. What wisdom is contained in each phrase!

We all have had those days filled with blunders…our own mistakes, and absurdities…the sheer craziness of the day. Sometimes it’s so difficult to let go of things because of embarrassment and the desire to blame others. We play out scenarios in our minds over and over again, almost willing them to end differently than reality, but it’s wasted energy! We must accept that some things really are out of our control and put our minds to rest. Tomorrow will begin as a clean slate, and so should our hearts and minds.
