Sometimes we let the past discourage us. Sometimes are so centered in memories and what we have done that we aren’t experiencing what is going on right now. Sometimes we fret, worry, stew about the past and forget that our Savior can and will take care of our past. So instead of vexing we need to start each day remembering that today is a new day and that means new possibilities, new experiences, new decisions to make, new people to meet, new ideas to encounter, but most of all new ways to be.
It doesn’t matter what was in the past, all that matters is what is now. So live today like it was the first day of your life—after all, it is the first day of the rest of your life! And make it what you want it to be.
