You are never too old to remind yourself that your validation does not rest in someone else’s acceptance of you. I love the adage, “What you think of me is none of my business.” As simple as this statement should be to remember, I oftentimes struggle to recall this simple pearl of wisdom.
Also, never, ever, not for one single solitary minute, expect what you did yesterday to account for something today. All the good and amazing things you did and accomplished yesterday will not carry forth into today. This is simply the law of nature. Just as a fresh start and daily do over are great to make up for some grievous act you perpetrated (or something you failed to perform) yesterday, the same is conversely true for the good things. Today is a new day. You are starting fresh and anew, my friend. Make today your best day. After all, now is all we have.
