Here I stand
In the light of day.
Let the storm rage on,
The cold never bothered me anyway.
Do you ever get hung up on yesterday’s problems in the new day? Isn’t that so easy to do? When the sun sets, the day is done. Whatever happened that brought me down, I want to be able to let it go. A new day will dawn. A renewed heart is what I want to live with tomorrow.
The poet Ralph Waldo Emerson put it this way:
Finish every 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;
begin it well and serenely, with too high a spirit
to be cumbered with your old nonsense.
This new day is too dear,
with its hopes and invitations,
to waste a moment on the yesterdays.
So when the sun sets, I want to finish the day and be done with it.
How about you? How have you learned to press ahead and let go of the past?
Linking up with a song-inspired party, Song-ography, where the theme this week is “Let It Go” from the Disney movie Frozen.
