Tomorrow, tomorrow, always tomorrow….

31 Dec

Christmas has come and gone.  No matter how you celebrate the holidays, they tend to be so very stressful.  It’s like we have 365 days every year to be grateful for and celebrate life, but we always try to cram an entire year of festivities into two days.  It seems like such a waste of the other 363 days.  Looking back, I always make myself that empty promise to do it differently.  We are all conceited in a way because we put so much off until tomorrow.  I should visit my parents, but there’s just too much to do, I’ll go tomorrow.  My sister is sick, I should call and check on her.  Oh, maybe tomorrow.  The kids are asking to play a board game, but the dishes are piled up in the sink.  Maybe we can play tomorrow. 

The one guarantee in this life is that there is no guarantee of tomorrow.  Fact of the matter is we should be taking advantage of every single moment.  If I am fortunate enough to live until I’m in my nineties like my granddad did, I want to look back with as few regrets as possible.  I know that we learn from our mistakes and without making them, we would never learn life’s valuable lessons.  I just want to be more conscientious and take advantage of every precious day and cling to it, wring every ounch of life I can out of it.  Maybe that will be my New Year’s resolution….wait, there I go again.
