Tomorrow is not guaranteed

Tomorrow is not guaranteed


It's that time of year again, when we're all consumed by our annual "will I have enough money for next year?" anxiety. And yes, it's easy to get caught up in the worries about how your finances will look in a few months' time. But here's something that might make you feel better: tomorrow is not guaranteed.

Tomorrow is not guaranteed

Don't put off what you can do today.

Don't wait until tomorrow to do what you can do today.

Don't wait until tomorrow to tell someone how you feel, or tell them that they mean everything to you, or that their life has changed because of them (even though it hasn’t).

No matter how much we plan, no matter how much we set aside, no matter how much we try and save for the future, tomorrow is not guaranteed. Or the next day. Or ever.

When you are young, it's easy to think that tomorrow will be better than today. You look at the world around you and see people enjoying their lives and making friends and doing things they love. That's why we all want to be successful in our careers; because we think that if we work hard enough, then one day things will turn out well for us.

But as time goes on, this optimism fades away until eventually we realize: no matter how much planning or saving or trying hard there is in life—no matter how much money or fame or love there is—it's still just one day at a time. And when that happens (and it always does), then all those plans go out the window because now there's nothing left except yourself: with nowhere else left to go but forward into whatever happens next!

Make sure you are living in the moment and enjoying life and family now.

The best way to avoid worrying about the future is to focus on what you can control right now.

  • Don't worry about what might happen in the future. Your future self may be able to control some aspects of your life, but not everything.

  • Don't worry about what you can't control. There are things that are beyond your control, such as the weather or other people's actions and reactions towards you; those things will just happen regardless of how much effort or energy you put into trying to change them (e.g., if someone cuts in front of me at an intersection because they're going too slow for my liking).

  • Don't worry about the past: there's no use dwelling on something that's already happened and cannot be changed by anything else happening today or tomorrow! If someone says something negative towards us while driving along with them (for example), then we should just smile politely back at them instead of saying something rude back because our response would only serve as ammo against ourselves later down line when it comes time for us return fire against those same kind souls who spoke ill-will towards us during our travels together earlier times.

Tomorrow is not guaranteed. But you can enjoy today and make sure that when tomorrow comes, you will still be here to enjoy it.
