Yesterday's Tomorrow...

Yesterday she sat at this very desk, wishing the rain would stop; dreaming of the sun.  Yesterday she drank far too much coffee, giving herself artificial energy because of how gloomy it was.  Yesterday she moped and whined about the dreadful weather.  Yesterday she got hardly any work done because she couldn't concentrate on anything but the wet, soggy, never-ending downpour.

But today is yesterday's tomorrow, and it is glorious.  Today the sun is shining and she can hear birds singing in nearby trees.  Today she is able to focus and got an A on a test.  Today she feels awake, alive and ready to face whatever comes.  Today she is cheerful and feeling quite content.  Today she is filled with inspiration.

But there are always tomorrows.  There is always the possibility of a day better than today.  Why do we not focus on that possibility, and forget our gloom?  Why do we trap ourselves in how dreadful it is right now when tomorrow might be just glorious?

She wasted yesterday because it wasn't what she wanted it to be, but there will always be gloomy days, and we cannot waste them all.

She resolved, as she nibbled a chocolate bar, to hold onto the hope of future sunny days.  She resolved to not waste the grey moments.  She resolved to see the beauty in everything, even the rain.

"He has made everything beautiful in its time..."
(Ecclesiastes 3:11)
