Joining in with Five Minute Friday again: this week’s word Tomorrow.
I don’t like tomorrow, I’ve decided. Or, rather, I don’t like tomorrows. In general. They’re the thiefs of happiness, the whole bunch of them. Stealthy little devils that come to steal your joy and strip your days of wonder. “I’ll do it tomorrow”….”Tomorrow I’ll be able to…”….tomorrow – that far off magical time when everything will be right with the world and conditions will be perfect to do x, y, z. I’ve known people who’ve never lived to see those kind of tomorrows. I know how cruel that is. Do yourself a favour, stop racing towards tomorrow and savour today. Not even today, really, but this moment. It’s all we ever have, when it boils down to it. Make the most of it. Live it fully. Give it all your attention. Enjoy it. It deserves it. That tiny bit of it, it’s your life. There, that momentary it…that’s your life. Don’t go wasting it.
