The Art of Living Each Day
Author: Wilferd A. Peterson
Each day is a lifetime in miniature.
To awaken each morning is to be born again, to fall asleep at night is to die to the day.
In between waking and sleeping are the golden hours of the day. What we cannot do for a lifetime we can do for a daytime.
Anyone can hold their temper for a day and guard the words they speak.
Anyone can carry his burden heroically for one day.
Anyone can strive to be happy for a day and to spread happiness around.
Anyone can radiate love for a day.
Anyone can rise above fear for a day and meet each new situation with courage.
Anyone can be kind and thoughtful and considerate for a day.
Anyone can endeavor to learn something new each day and mark some growth.
The supreme art of living is to strive to live each day well.
When we fail and fall short, let us forgive ourselves and consider the words of Emerson: “Finish every day and be done with it. You have done what you could; some blunders and absurdities have crept in; forget them as soon as you can. Tomorrow is a new day; you will begin it well and serenely and with too high a spirit to be cumbered by your old nonsense.”
Live a day at a time and remember that tomorrow is another today.
