Have you ever watched that TV show "Friday Night Lights?"
If you have Netflix, I highly recommend it. We gave up cable a while back when our TV broke and started tapping into Netflix and watching whole seasons of shows on our iPads. It's pretty fun, actually--getting through a whole 5 years of a show in a few weeks or months.
Friday Night Lights was one of those shows, and we were hooked pretty quick. Coach Taylor is the football coach, and in Texas, he lives or dies by the win. His wife is a smart, no-nonsense kind of lady:
Coach Taylor: "I have no idea what's going to happen tomorrow."
Mrs. Taylor: "Well, you're gonna win; or you're gonna lose. Either way, the sun's gonna come up tomorrow."
I love this.
I try to remember it often. I want to make sure I don't forget it.
No matter what happens, no matter how dire or crazy I think it all is, the world will continue spinning on its axis. The stars will continue to come out brightest at night. In the morning, the sun will rise and I'll rise with it, and dive into a new day.
Contrary to popular belief, I DO want to stop thinking about tomorrow for a while.
What can I do today to be the best version of myself?
