Worry About Today, Tomorrow Will Take Care of Itself

“There are two days in the week about which and upon which I never worry… Yesterday and Tomorrow.” ~Robert Jones Burdette …
What a thought huh? If only I could pay attention to today, all the time. I don’t know about you, but I sometimes catch myself worrying about tomorrow. Do you ever worry about yesterday?
My mother always said, stay away from negative people, they’ll only bring you down. Even negative people have positive thoughts; the challenge is to find those thoughts. Sometime it’s just too much work and the best thing to do is move on. Many of us have negative people in our lives, some we work with on a daily basis.
