Quote – Essay #1

Aside from my ‘Dear Diary’ posts I’ve had the idea to make short essays from quotes I want to reflect upon. So this will be my first “Quote-Essay” post.

“Remember, today is the tomorrow you worried about yesterday.” – Dale Carnegie

I’m such a weary and anxious person. It is true and I undoubtedly admit that I worry too much that it already eats some of my precious time. After I worry, I’m usually sorry or angered that I wasted time again. Worrying is such a poison slowly ruining what’s ours. Like from what another quote says, worrying is like a rocking chair; it gives you something to do but you never get anywhere.

Now that I’m a third year college student, my worries just worsened. But time and again, I think of something positive. I just idolize my mother for she went through a lot and still stays positive, I, on the other hand, can let negative thoughts inside me. Whether she is really a positive thinker or she puts on a positive side for me and my sister doesn’t really matter to me, what matters is that she does it.

Seems like yesterday when I was still a freshman, or yet a freshman in high school. Time flies so fast that sometimes we don’t catch up with it. Sometimes we’re still in the past, sometimes we want to be in the future. Wherever we are or want to be, one thing is certain, time will always be moving. One day I’ll wake up and I’ll be marching in my graduation, and my worries right now will be yesterday, such true words from Dale Carnegie.
