“Write it on your heart…”

Just the other day I was speaking with a friend about how so often this time of year can be busy and stressful because by the so-called “end” of the year it has gotten easier to think about deadlines and the additional holiday festivities that are actually available to us to celebrate.  So, I found this wonderful poem which reminds of what every day should be like and how to frame your mindset for it.

“Write it on your heart
that every day is the best day in the year.
He is rich who owns the day, and no one owns the day
who allows it to be invaded with fret and anxiety.

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.”
