Have you ever woken up pissed because you still woke up in your own life? I don’t mean in a morbid fashion but for some reason before you went to sleep you just knew ‘tomorrow would be a better day.’ Even if you don’t want to admit it somebody else will. We’ve been told for our whole lives ‘tomorrow’. Annie sang it from her windowsill every night and we all watched as that fist fighting, street dancing, ginger soloist found the family she’d always wanted! She got that big house and big family and all the love she’d always desired.
My tomorrow song would be more closely linked to Fizzy’s Tomorrow in Bugsy Malone, (one of my favorite movies, literally, of all time) he calls tomorrow,” a resting place for bums”. He wanted to become a dancer at Fat Sam’s and was always told to try again tomorrow. Blousey Brown, shared in this as in a scene she yelled out after a very frustrating audition, “come back tomorrow, come back tomorrow ALL MY LIFE I’ve had to come back tomorrow!” tomorrow is like Life’s scapegoat sometimes. When you need answers it’s always telling you to look to tomorrow. Tomorrow can be like a fake jar of peanuts only for you to open up the can and those annoying fake snakes come popping out of it. I don’t want to come off too pessimistic but I mean there only 24hrs in a day, every moment that passes is a blessing because they aren’t promised but somehow we are always waiting on tomorrow?!
Well if life is a bitch then tomorrow is a jaded temptress that uses its mystery to inveigle you into a false sense of security. Harsh? I mean tomorrow’s not even a real thing until it actually happens and life is what we’re all doing now but we openly call Life a bitch. I’m just saying. I wish that I could go to sleep one night and think of how all my issues that need to be fixed and wake up the next day with them actually fixed! I mean come on let’s be honest here and that means not PC. We all have heard and or chanted the mantra of hard work and dedication and how all of it will pay off. But what if you’re already in downtown Screwedsville, with a loft on Main Street that you’re about to lose because the perpetual motion of life is occurring in such a way you can’t keep up? So bills due today will increase in value come tomorrow and the ailment will worsen by tomorrow, the hunger will only grow as will the kids, I mean; Life. If anything tomorrow’s only promise in these scenarios is that shit hasn’t even hit the fan yet!
If you want to start using and relying on a supplement like Kratom, you need to ensure that you are purchasing high quality products from a reliable vendor. This is why many people are turning to Amazon for Kratom and other supplements, you can find more info here.
To be fair I have a huge issue with anxiety and things that are very doable and achievable for others, freaks me out sometimes; freaks me out, to say the least. So I need something more than ‘Tomorrow” to calm my savage psyche. Keep your head up, no good. Hang in there, too difficult. Believe it or not what works best is, it can always be worse. I can dig this phrase because it appeals to me more directly because I know firsthand that things can always be worse. As I said, because of the constants of actual life, things that have to potential to go even further south, usually will. Even though I reverie this saying over others it doesn’t make me complacent as it motivates me. I become overwhelmed with how blessed I actually am because of this statement and it even pushes me to do something for someone else!
I read and watch all types of devastating stories from around the world and around the corner, when I start to go through my motions with my own crap, I see that a mother just lost a son, I hear a Father lost his job, I’ve seen a friend lose a friend. The sorrow and elation you feel in those moments are all natural and good for my process. It helps that part of me that always feels like all the bad stuff in the world happens to me and me only, the part of me that is so vain that I think nobody understands me. I’m sorry but although that’s a common emotion, there’s billions of people out here, someone understands you. Most importantly it helps with the feeling of wanting to give up. I can’t begin to tell you how often I find myself reading a story of another’s triumph over their adversities and I want to take on the planet. People can suck but there are times when we are truly amazing. I can’t stomach myself being miserable when I read a baby that was abandoned grew up to graduate from Harvard. A man that was living on the streets, never eating and never being treated with basic human courtesy can pick himself up and find a way to start a thriving business! A mother who loses a son and doesn’t give up on life but decides to dedicate the rest of her life to making sure no other mother loses their sons. As long as I know that every tomorrow, someone else will be doing their absolute best with whatever they’re given, you can bet your bottom dollar that that’s more than enough for motivation for me.
Bring it Tomorrow!
