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 adversities, 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 yet unborn.

 

This leaves only one day – Today – Anyone 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 us 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.

 

Ok, so for those of you who have not heard of Tough Mudder, just look at the website:

Here is a link to the training they suggest as well.

I am doing it.  As I am saying that, I am asking myself why and already getting scared.

I have been reading the reviews and although people say its amazing, they also say that it broke them like no other event they have participated in.  Its not a race.  There is no prize.  Its all about tested your mental and physical to the limit.  Im all in. 

It will definitley be a personal victory of sorts as I will have to train hard and stay focused to get ready for this for sure!

Wish me luck!
