“New World in the Morning”

There were some lovely songs recorded in the 1970’s … many of which are still appropriate for today (and probably tomorrow). This was another one that I came across in my task of converting vinyl to digital! It stresses the perennial message that “tomorrow never comes” in the context that, if you really want to do some thing, you shouldn’t wait until “tomorrow”. When you think about it, if there is something we want to do that is important enough to plan starting “tomorrow”, then surely  it is important enough to start today?

I remember listening to a speaker who had spent many hours talking with individuals who were at the end of their lives.  The ones that had been productive, and could look back with smiles of satisfaction, readily accepted their demise. Conversely, those who had procrastinated throughout their lives, often by simply putting off doing things until “tomorrow”, were the ones that were  bitter. From their perspective, life had been unfair to them.

Today is really all we have, and there are no guarantees about tomorrow. One day, tomorrow really is not going to come … literally!  Use today to write that letter; send that email; make that phone call; start a walking program; be careful about what you are eating; make the first move to repair a relationship; do anything that you have been thinking about starting “tomorrow”. Nike’s logo of “Do it now” says it all. Enjoy Roger Whitaker reminding is of all this!

  1. Agreed, don’t postpone! I feel the same about making steps at the moment. As you said, all we have is the current moment. The past is gone, the future will never arrive. Still, that another morning is in sight can help over difficult times or when we did have a bad day. We can try to leave it behind and make a new and fresh start the next day. This song is so uplifting.
