Finish Each Day

Finish every day and be done with it.
You have done what you could.
Some blunders and absurdities
no doubt have crept in;
forget them as soon as you can.

Tomorrow is a new day;
begin it well and serenely
and with too high a spirit
to be cumbered with
your old nonsense.

This day is all that is
good and fair.
It is too dear,
with its hopes and invitations,
to waste a moment on yesterdays.

Ralph Waldo Emerson
Wishing you all a wonderful, wonderful weekend. May it be filled with peace, love, and joy. 


  1. Love this quote. So true, and something I work hard to practice. Sometimes it is very hard.

    Have a great weekend!

  2. And a restful and lovely weekend wish to you too!

    No cooking this weekend. Isn't that nice? :-)

    "Nature goes her own way, and all that to us seems an exception is really according to order."

  4. What a beautiful post - and so wise.
