Tomorrow’s Happiness Begins Today. Hey everyone, I hope you are well. In today’s post, I will be talking about the term ‘tomorrow happiness begins today’. When I was younger, my mum always says that it will be better tomorrow, whatever you are going through today. Therefore, we struggle today for a better tomorrow. I never really understand what she meant until I became an adult, and I started seeing things differently.
The way the world is going right now, it is easy to forget about tomorrow. We are still in Lockdown in Scotland, and I honestly think we will be in and out of Lockdown throughout the year. However, it doesn’t mean it is the end of the world. You still have a chance to change your life, and If you want to wake up to happiness tomorrow, you have to work on it today.
Tomorrow’s Happiness Begins Today
If you want to be happy tomorrow, you need to begin working at it today.
Some people spend their lives waiting for happiness to arrive on their own, and it never comes. Others work hard at creating wealth but still aren’t happy, discovering that money only brings a whole different set of problems. Happiness is a state of mind and not the size of your bank account. Satisfaction is emotional and not physical. Each individual needs to work at creating happiness.
I like how Richard Bach, the author of Jonathan Livingston Seagull, put it when he said, “If your happiness depends on what somebody else does, I guess you do have a problem.”
To find happiness, you first have to understand where happiness comes from. Memories are to the mind what a mirror is to the eyes – a reflection. The mirror reflects the physical while our memories reflect the emotional. When you look in the mirror, it reflects what you look like; when you look in your mind, it reflects who you are. One big difference between the two is that you can change what you see in the mirror, but you can’t change the memories reflected in your mind.
We tend to spend a lot of time trying to improve what we see in the mirror, but little or no effort to improve our thoughts. Every action creates a memory. Do you think that the person who is bitter and angry today was happy and cheerful yesterday? If a person says or does something that angers or upsets us, we can either add to the painful memory with our own negative actions or replace them with positive stories and create positive memories.
If you want to be happy tomorrow, you must choose carefully what you do today, because today’s actions will be reflected in tomorrow’s memories and you can not make them go away. Everything you do today will be in tomorrow’s reflection. The next time a person angers you, instead of lashing out, try imagining that you are holding up a mirror that bounces the review back at him, knowing that his actions or words are a reflection of him and not of you.
We all want to like what we see in the mirror. To be truly happy, we also have to like what we see reflected in our minds. The mirror reflects is not nearly as powerful as what the reason reflects, for it reflects our words and actions.
What will your reflections be filled with?
Will your reflections/memories be filled with goodness and joy or with bitterness and anger?
What have you done today that will bring you happiness tomorrow?
Always remember the little things matter.
I hope you enjoyed that.
