Always Another Tomorrow

This title is a hopeful saying to hear, but is it true in real life? Tomorrow is always tomorrow and never really becomes today.

It sounds more like a title for a James Bond movie. As you know there have been a number of actors who've played the 007 role, and not all are having that "always another tomorrow" experience today!

Just as the James Bond character is fictitious, so are many of these casual statements we say or hear daily. Fluffy, airy and wispy sayings that make the world all sound "OK." "All is well."

In fact, we know that "all is not well" and not all change is for the best. That there are forces at work and people in this world that do not look out for our good, and if anything desire and are bent on the opposite!

Some people's "tomorrows" are ending today - no more "being" in this realm of existence. Sad, if their lives were cut short by evil doings, ignorance or unwise choices. Fortunate, for those who are suffering with a fatal illness - sooner is better.

Unlike these many James Bond actors, there is only one of us - you and me.

That too can be a blessing! Or, if the way we live our lives impact the lives of others so beneficial, that other's would appreciate there be more of us! Then our character would be good to duplicate! Character worth aspiring towards!

There are some people you know that really help make things better and run smoother - you may even be one of those people! Character traits that promote quality, integrity and high standards and respectable morals, where everyone wins! (except those who are against these foundational social elements).

Some of the character traits of this license to kill British spy are found in reality, but are they truly depicted for what they are? He's licensed to kill, but only to kill the bad people! He has sex with voluptuous women (one to the perks of his job), which later in the movie die or go their own way (no lasting relationships, no concern for sexually transmitted diseases, pregnancy).

He's suave, confident. Better than others! He can drink a lot and not get drunk. Smoke, yet not be addicted. Play cards and win. Be drugged and poisoned, yet find a way to survive.

He rates "10's" across the board! He's someone we'd all want to have on our side! Some males dream of being him in real life! Many females agree with their dream!

We all know that in reality no one can be that way, it's not humanly possible. And that "our tomor-
rows" will one day come to an end, probably when we least expect it.

If we live today like there's no tomorrow, we may find our life shorted, or elongated depending on our choices (or the choices of others and events that happen beyond our control - 9/11).

What is important to us and how we see ourselves, in relation to others and what we think or believe will determine how we live each day, even our tomorrows.

Are we holding ourselves accountable for our lives, what we do or don't do, to make sure we are truly "living" and not just going thru the motions {playing the background void when we're suppose to be the star of our own life movie}?

Are you looking forward to tomorrow? Thinking, there always will be one? Or, are you consciously aware that what is today may not be here tomorrow? Reality - versus - wishful thinking and unrealistic imaginations.

Live today while the living is good!
or
Living good today, while you're among the living!

Realizing that unlike 007, you are not given a license to kill, you will get drunk if you drink too much, you won't always win at cards, if you have promiscuous sex you most likely will contact a sexual transmitted disease, drugs and poison can and likely result in your death (in one way or the other - accidents), not everyone will adore you or respect you and what you do today may cancel out your always another tomorrow!

When our name is called up yonder,

or our number's up,

do we know where we will spend our tomorrows?

Among the Living
or
living dead ...

a limbo void of no tomorrows!
