Hey, Tomorrow!

Please share on social media, the more we share the more we understand each other.

Well, hey tomorrow, where are you goin'?
Do you have some room for me?
'Cause night is fallin', and the dawn is callin'
I'll have a new day, if she'll have me
I'll have a new day, if she'll have me
Jim Croce, Hey Tomorrow

One of the most underappreciated elements of time is “tomorrow.” It is oft a dumping ground for things we should have done today. Sometimes it is a way to avoid doing the unpleasant, ‘We’ll (do that, go there, build that, fix that) tomorrow.

And more often than not, it is a promise more gorgeous than its realization when it turns into today.

But here is the one thing tomorrow has over everything else, yesterday, today, next week, and next year. It is close by and full of potential. While there are things out of our control that may turn tomorrow into bad memories, there are also those tomorrows that fulfill the most magical of potential.

It occurred to me that tomorrow, given the right attitude of not wasting a moment’s worry or sadness on things you cannot control, always offers us that last gift from Pandora’s Box, Hope.

And as long as tomorrow has hope, it is something to look forward to at the end of today.

…we can’t keep time in a bottle.

Joe Broadmeadow

Now, someday, we will have gone through our life’s allocations of tomorrows. There will always be one more today than tomorrows. And this is exactly one of those things which should not make us sad but encourage us to embrace each transition from tomorrow into today.

So here’s what I would do if given the proverbial three wishes from a mythical genie. I would only need one to make my life and the lives of those around me happy. And here it is.

May all your tomorrows be better than all your todays.

As simple as that. “I’ll have a new day, if she’ll have me…” as Mr. Croce wrote because we can’t keep time in a bottle.
