Remember yesterday, when you said you would “do something tomorrow?” Or other tasks or self-renovation acts that you’ve been putting off for a while?

Today is yesterday’s tomorrow, so I’ll make no excuses for procrastinating in any way.

Then there are those days that you regret. Have you ever woken up Sunday and gritted your teeth over what you did Saturday?

Today is also tomorrow’s yesterday, meaning I’m going to try not to make any mistakes that I’ll kick myself for.

My mom has told me that there are two pains you can choose in life: the pain of discipline, or the pain of regret. Discipline means looking at today in the context of the past, and deciding I’m going to act now. Discipline means looking at today in the context of the future and keeping my end goal in mind so I don’t lose myself on a side trail.

If I don’t exercise my self-will, I will feel the pain of regret. And I have a chance to be reminded of that every day.
