Tomorrow is a new day

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; you shall begin it well and serenely, and with too high a spirit to be cumbered with your old nonsense.

—Ralph Waldo Emerson, in an 1854 letter to his daughter.

It’s my birthday today, and this is something I think about when considering my relentlessly increasing age.

The best day for a new positive change is always today. But we’re very fallible human beings and I’ve been stress eating for about six months, so barring that, let’s not discount tomorrow either.
