Wordsmith Wednesday: Ralph Waldo Emerson

Standard
This week’s Wordsmith Wednesday comes from Ralph Waldo Emerson. They are,
“Finish each 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. You shall begin it serenely and with too high a spirit to be encumbered with your old nonsense.”
Though these are words by Emerson that are often quoted, they are still constantly applicable to every day life. They teach us to keep moving forward and, as hard as it is, to not dwell on the past. Every day is as malleable as the next. We can chose to sit still and allow past decisions to fester within us, or move forward and shape our own future day by day.
