Louise has 10 months! How does she do it?

One tool Louise uses is:

YESTERDAY...TODAY AND TOMORROW

THERE are two days in every week about which we should not worry, two days which should be kept free from fear and apprehension.

One of these days is YESTERDAY with its mistakes and cares, its faults and blunders, its aches and pains. YESTERDAY has passed forever beyond our control.

All the money in the world cannot bring back YESTERDAY. We cannot undo a single act we performed; we cannot erase a single word we said. YESTERDAY is gone.

The other day we should not worry about is TOMORROW with its possible adversaries, its burdens, its large promise and poor performance. TOMORROW is also beyond our immediate control.

TOMORROW'S sun will rise, either in splendor or behind a mask of clouds--but it will rise. Until it does, we have no stake in TOMORROW for it is as yet unborn.

This leaves only one day--TODAY--. Any man can fight the battles of just one day. It is only when you and I add the burdens of those two awful eternities--YESTERDAY and TOMORROW that we break down.

It is not the Experience of TODAY that drives men mad--it is remorse or bitterness for something which happened YESTERDAY and the dread of what TOMORROW may bring.

LET US, THEREFORE, LIVE BUT ONE DAY AT A TIME.

Home!

Acceptance is the answer to all of my problems today. When I am disturbed, it is because I find some person, place, thing or situation unacceptable to me, and I can find no peace until I accept that person, place, thing or situation as being the exact way that it is supposed to be at this moment. Nothing absolutely nothing happens in God’s world by mistake. Unless I accept life completely as the way it is I cannot be happy. I need to concentrate on what needs to change in ME not on what needs to be changed in the world as.

We think so much about the future and set ourselves up for what? Unmet expectations, hurt feelings because we have envisioned what we want the future to look like and when that doesn’t happen we feel sad, remorseful and like a failure.

No more forward expectations!

Time to let go because the fact is we will never know what is going to happen! Sometimes things work out and sometimes they don’t. We can’t pick up for any reason!
