Better than Yesterday

All of us surely have days that we feel like nothing seems right,
There are moments we may feel so alone even if there are people around you,
And there are times we feel like we are empty inside,
But all of it is normal.
We can feel that way from time to time.
Those are the days that we need to keep moving,
Those are the moments that we have to do something,
And those are times that we keep on walking.
Rest, take a break, but keep moving…
Always strive to be better than yesterday,
Just try and try again if you fail.
For stagnancy leads to depression,
It is probably the time for deviation.
But all I want for today, is to be better than yesterday. 🙂

  1. Oh Mel–aren’t you the wise one today!! Excellent word for me–and I know I’m not the only one having “one of those weeks”. Thank you for encouraging us! God bless you today, and always.


      1. Mel–I think it’s been tough for a LOT of people; I know I’m still trying to push through it–but with God’s gracious help, we CAN DO it!! Now, I’m going to reblog this on my site. I kind of wanted to do the lizard one too, but maybe I should just make mention of it… Thank you for always blessing us! (And next week will surely be better.)


  2. Reblogged this on Caddo Veil and commented:
    Here’s a great offering from our lovely Mel! Some of us have been having a tough go, this week–but I dare you not to be encouraged by her post! And while you’re visiting her, Do Also check out her “lizard in the Bible”–really cool!!
    Remember–“Prayer Works, because GOD IS Faithful”; and next week will be easier, I’m sure!~~love, Caddo


  3. Another beautiful, timely work of art, dear Mel! 🙂 Thank you for helping us all through this week, one day at a time, this one better than the last.


  4. This is just what I needed to read today.

    The flu has left me feeling very low and I am finding it difficult to be positive (that;s why I posted my silly Witchy Woman poem, to try to cheer myself up, and “keep moving”)

    I know stagnancy leads to depression because I have been there twice and do not want to go back there.

    Thank you for sharing this today.

    Much Love

    1. Aww..get well soon! I got colds when I was doing that artwork, but I’m glad it is gone now.
      Thanks for sharing your thoughts. Have a great day! ♥

      – Mel 🙂


  5. I like your drawing! The girl’s like a grown up version of Dora the explorer 🙂
    Your poem is amazing. I should read it everytime I feel sad or tired.
    These lines are so powerful: ” For stagnancy leads to depression,
    It is probably the time for deviation.”
    Thanks for sharing.
