This week’s meme quote is from the end of One Fish Two Fish Red Fish Blue Fish.
What a great thing to say to wrap up a good day. I actually used to quote this to my youngest daughter when she was a wee thing. She’s so like me and never wanted to go to bed. (Still doesn’t!)
I like the positivity of the statement. Today was a good day. We don’t have to mourn that it’s over. We get a whole new day tomorrow, full of promise and wonder. Sometimes today was a good day, but not long enough to complete our goals or projects...or our fun. It’s ok. Tomorrow is another one.
Sometimes we might have to add the word “not” and recognize that perhaps our day was not fun. It’s ok. Today is gone and tomorrow is another one.
Each day that we wake up, we have a chance to start a new adventure. Perhaps we get to continue the great adventure we started yesterday, or the day before or several yesterdays before that.
There was a great song in the 80s by the group Talk Talk, called “Life’s What You Make It.” We get to make our life! We may not be able to control our circumstances, but we can control how we choose to feel about and react to them. In that way, we make our life. So when we lay down to rest at the end of our day,and think to ourselves (I know you will tonight, ha!) “Today is gone. Today was fun. Tomorrow is another one,” we can rest assured that indeed, tomorrow is another day and whatever happened in our day today, we get start fresh when wake up.
I hope that your today was fun. What will you do with your tomorrow?
