New ~ A Theme Thursday Post

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 American Poet

  3. Nice post, but I always amended that second quote to read: "Today is the first day of the rest of your life... But then again, so was yesterday, and that sucked, too!" Not exactly a lemonade-making attitude, huh, doll? Haha!

  5. If "my" rain backs up and causes floods, you can always drag out your handy-dandy surfboard and rise above it all...

  6. Beautiful sunset, Betsy. Love it! Doesn't it make you feel there is a strong presence in the Universe?

    Regarding the quotaion, reminds me of Scarlet O'Hara,
    "'Cause after all, tomorrow is another day" LOL

  8. Well since yesterday is gone and tomorrow never comes
    To all even us little rhyming bums
    Today is the first day of the rest of your life
    So I guess we better make it good and ignore the strife
    Even if the SSDD occurs once more
    Should still try and soar
    Now my uplifting niceness is through
    Back to going into a miserable stew..haha

  16. Thanks for this, Betsy - it's the perfect flip side to my post about the down-side to the upcoming season, and depression about (seemingly) nothing at all.

  32. Funny how they say to live each day as if it is our last, which it might well be. But we seem to always live with the thought that we will always have a new day tomorrow. We must be strong believers in hope.

    Thanks for joining in on Theme Thursday.

    God bless.

  33. An uplifting thought Betsy, but given my continuing back pain I am hoping that today is merely the beginning of just a short, painful interlude. Painkillers are not helping much - tonight I will try the pub.
