one day at a time

      one day at a time, it's one of those old adeges that's been around long enough to make it to the status of cliche. as much as it may feel like the need to roll your eyes respect must be paid to its endurance. countless are the times i've been told to just take it a day at a time, easy does it is the way. i listen but so often i fail to hear. in the disease of my mind overanalysis prevails. i worry, i wonder, i fear and i fret. i allow myself to operate under the dellusion that i have some sort of control  over my surroundings. each word holds more weight than it should and each action effects more than it can touch. i reel at the thought of how much energy is expended on the anticipation of future facts which will never bear truth.
