Yesterdays and Tomorrows

You don't get rid of yesterday by talking about it all the time;

you get rid of its effect on you by moving forward.

I saw this quote and thought about it a long while.

and I think in my own life it took me a lot of time

to figure this out.  Mind you, I know other women

who never figure this out, and they're stuck.

I prefer to just keep moving forward. 

However, I have my own issues with this as well.

Because along with a "keep moving forward" mantra

I'm also stuck with "work before pleasure" 

and as many of you know, sometimes our job it never done.

In my own case, what I do in my BigBox store never ends.

It's a constant stream of 'job security'  so I've had to learn how

to break it down into pieces to allow me to feel as if my day

was accomplished and as complete as I could make it. 

Not an easy task for someone who tends to be a workaholic!

Fleetwood Mac's song comes to mind, seems to say this very thing:

Why not think about times to come,
And not about the things that you've done,

If your life was bad to you,
Just think what tomorrow will do.

Don't stop thinking about tomorrow,
Don't stop, it'll soon be here,

It'll be better than before,
Yesterday's gone, yesterday's gone.

(Sorry, is that tune stuck in your head now too??  *giggles* )
