The following is a great quote from Ralph Waldo Emerson. It is a great reminder to give each day your all and not to dwell too long in the past. I can’t help but think of it when I reach the end of my day and realize that I was not perfect with my kiddos. Parenting is not a game of perfect. It is constant adjustment as we try new things while adapting to their changes.
“Finish each day and be done with it. You have done what you could. Some blunders and absurdities have 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”.
Shake the weight of yesterday, smile, and go on with today.
