Yesterday's Gone Today I'm in Need:

No Crying Over Spilt Milk
None of us is getting out of here alive. You might as well get off your butt and stop feeling sorry for yourself. Get back on your feet and grind. Make the best of the life you have. That is all you've got. Use it. It does not matter what you had yesterday. Wake up to your today and grind. As Lucius Annaeus Seneca rightly said, "No man is crushed by misfortune unless he has first been deceived by prosperity."

Yesterday is gone with the wind, the good, the not so good and the bad, altogether the same. Gone with the wind. Today is what you have. It is the offer of a brand new day, a brand new morning; new reasoning, new opportunities, new adventures, new, you name what. "No man ever steps in the same river twice, for it’s not the same river and it’s not the same man." (Heraclitus)

Don't let today it waste away by being chained to your yesterday. And, who is that arrogant prophet that tells you all is lost? Who told you yesterday's results spelts doom? Who told you it is done? Such have no inkling the great work of Nature, the great work of divinity. The sifting and leveling work of time. Fixated on the temporal they make a fool of themselves.

There is no vacancy in divinity for mortal men to rise in an attempt at playing God. Why attempt to put a period, where divinity chooses to leave a comma. There is no period between your yesterday and your today. It is just a comma. Meaning what you do today can define, not change, your yesterday. And, puts you in play for tomorrow. Enough is today's evil. Focus.

There is more to you than you can ever imagine. There is more for you in the scheme of life. Only don't give up. Don't shut down on the inside. Don't plug the stream of your life flow. You are still in the game. You are still in the play. It takes more than yesterday to take you out. You have staying power in you. You are a survivor. You are not at your rope's end. There is more.

So, wake up to life. Summon your courage. Be a man (woman, as might apply). Call on your human spirit. Call on your human mind. Let your humanness come to life. You are made for more than this. You go it in you. And, there is work to be done. Yesterday's debt's been paid. You are on notice as per today. So step out and grind. Grind, grind, grind, and show the world what you are made of.

Grind, grind, grind, and let that which is in you live out. You got greatness in you. You got potential. You got greatness in you. You got what it takes. Let no yesterday, let no ignoramus take that away from you. Grind, and use that which is innate within you. Press to be the best at your game. The future holds the key to your payback. All that yesterday took from you, there is payback.

Grind, grind, grind, yesterday owes you, and he is going to pay you back in full, but only if grind and bring your potential to life. Grind, grind, grind, destiny is calling. Today beckons on you to pay up. For today is the key to payback, tomorrow.

Today is for today; Yesterday was for yesterday and tomorrow will be for tomorrow. Get that? Enough for each are their own troubles. And, you can handle each, if only you keep them where they belong.

Will you? Can you? Please do. Your generations yet unborn will bless you for it.
