Just Thinking About Tomorrow

I admit that the first thing that came into my head, when I read that the NaBloPoMo blogging theme for August was tomorrow, was the song Tomorrow from the musical Annie.

I know that my focus needs to be on living in the present moment, today, not in the past and not for tomorrow. However, I believe that the promise of tomorrow is what makes living today possible. Tomorrow represents hope: hope that if today isn't going well, tomorrow might be better. I wake every day believing that if I work hard today, I will reap the benefits tomorrow. And on days when I am flared-up and having problems, I go to bed hoping that I will wake up in the morning feeling better.

In other words:
Yesterday is but today's memory, tomorrow is today's dream.
~Kahlil Gibran
So everyday this August, I will write about my hopes for the following day, my tomorrows. It will be interesting to explore my hopes and dreams, as well as my short-term, day-to-day plans.

So to set the mood, I've included a YouTube video of Tomorrow from Annie. Here are the lyrics as well:
The sun'll come out
Bet your bottom dollar
That tomorrow
There'll be sun!

Just thinkin' about
Clears away the cobwebs,
And the sorrow
'Til there's none!

When I'm stuck a day
That's gray,
And lonely,
I just stick out my chin
And Grin,
And Say,

The sun'll come out
So ya gotta hang on
'Til tomorrow
Come what may
Tomorrow! Tomorrow!
I love ya Tomorrow!
You're always
A day
A way!
See you tomorrow!
