“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 well and serenely...” - Ralph Waldo Emerson
It is kismet that led me to this particular quote today! Over the past weekend, I was at the boys' swim meet. Since they both had been sick, they didn't do as well as they wanted and there was much upset-ness. I kept saying "remember what you thought you did well; think about what you didn't like only as far as it helps you do better the next time; forget the rest and move on; it's all in the past now; stand up tall and proud like a champion no matter how well you think you did."
I should take my own advice more often. ;)
Many thanks for all the get well wishes! I am feeling much much better, albeit a little tired still. I think it was all the nice messages that helped me get over it so quickly! Have an absolutely fabulous week, everyone!
