Tomorrow is Another Day…Posted: February 25, 2013
Today was one of those rough days. The type of day where it feels like people and/or situations are taking a number and standing in line to try to pile it up on you. The kind that makes you look forward to getting home, taking a hot shower and putting it all behind you. I did just that when my day finally came to an end. I’ll spare the details, but my emotions definitely got their money’s worth today. As I was in that hot shower, I thought about my day and how I spent it (mercifully) behind my closed office door. I thought about how I openly expressed my emotions to some in my close circle. And then I could feel the guilt creeping in: “You shouldn’t have let so and so see you like that.” But I told myself to stop. To honor that today was just a bad day and that we all have them. Then I thought of a line from one of my most all-time favorite movies, “Gone With the Wind.” In fact, it is the very last line of the movie where the heroine, Scarlett O’Hara, simply makes the statement: “After all, tomorrow is another day.”
I repeated that line to myself a few times as I also told myself to just let today go. I decided to find the clip from the movie and share it on this blog in case it serves as a reminder for others who may need it. Not only do I love this particular line, but I also appreciate how Scarlett comes to the realization that she can always return home. By going back to the roots of who we are, we can figure out a way for moving forward.
I look forward to tomorrow.
