Tomorrow is a New Day

United States
December 7, 2008 9:59pm CST
Duh! Really? Who came up with that one. Talk about Captain Obvious! I mean, I think we all know that Tomorrow is a new day, don't we? Unless maybe today is tomorrow and tomorrow is yesterday, or something. Somebody, please, please, tell me why we say things like , Tomorrow is a new day, Tomorrow is another day? Or, maybe it's just me who thinks stating the obvious is kind of silly.

well, I think that a new day is a new beginning,,,, so if your having a very crappy day today.. then you might have a better day tomorrow.... It is a way of saying,, "yes, we are having a bad day today".. but it will not last forever... Tomorrow will bring a "new beginning with the new day"

Yeah, I know, Louise. I really should have left this discussion alone, last night. I should have left it until I could better reason out what was going on in my head at the time, and better stated it.*L*

The fact of the matter Bo is that tomorrow never comes anyways, so who bloody cares? I was thinking about tomorrow last night, and then I wake up and it's not tomorrow..... It's TODAY! What the hell is up with that?? And of course I will get all caught up in the same process tonight and think about tomorrow again; and so the madness will continue..... It's not another day, it doesn't exist Bo. It's a MYTH.

Which is why I love to put stuff off 'til tomorrow...if someone says "you said you were gonna do it today" I can say "no, I said I'd do it tomorrow".

*LOL* That is pretty funny. An obvious statement, for sure. Like you might have been raised by wolves or something?

Good one! My life has always been like tomorrow is yet another day. Tomorrow, which is supposed to bring new, fresh things, preferably positive, has not been my case. I am not cynical here, I am just being practical.

Yeah, but it is STILL a new start, mimpi. The chance of one, anyway.*S*

Hey bo! Well thank you for this discussion! I have a girlfriend who is constantly saying "Tomorrow is another day!" And I would always say to her "Well thank you Scarlet!" And she would not have a clue what the hell I was talking about because she never saw "Gone With The Wind". When she finally did see it she got it! You are so right! Why do people have to say those things? Is it supposed to be different? Tomorrow is going to be something different! That really does drive me so crazy! It is just another pointless saying to annoy as far as I am concerned! And it is one that you would never hear me say, that's a definite!

that's a definite! This reminds me of something a character in a show used to say, And, I am unanimous in this.*L* I agree, obvious statements are silly. But, as someone below said, some people need the obvious pointed out to them. *L*

"It's a game of two halves" Bo. "The first person to score a goal will be in the lead. Harry is in the lead apart from George who is ahead of him. It's not over until it's over" Daft, but comforting too. Maybe we just like to reassure ourselves of the obvious. A sort of armchair psychology.

A "The more things change the more they stay the same", kind of thing, then? We want to know that things today will be the same as they were yesterday, that everything we know will be the same familiar thing, tomorrow? Is this what you are trying to tell me, pikey?

Yes and no. I don't think that we always do want things to stay the same. A little variety is good sometimes (as would be a heater for my toes right now!) and helps to keep our minds active. But that said, we don't like being taken out of our comfort zones too much either. So slow change over and extended period. I can't think of a blindingly obvious statement to go with that just now. But I might later.

Well Bo, I for one don't always want tomorrow to be the same as today. Some todays are so bad I just can't wait for tomorrow and hope I wake up and find it was all a dream. . .but there it is again, it's not tomorrow, it's today.

Reminds me of a line from one of my favorite songs..."And today is only yesterday's tomorrow". Stating the obvious is a necessity for those of us who are completely blind to it...or those of us who concentrate so heavily on the subliminal that we totally miss the obvious.

I don't know about it being a 'new' day but don't we have Scarlett O'Hara to blame for it being 'another' day?

hmmm so you managed to start a new discussion from a non issue. well i am replying to a non issue and folowing your trend too. Ok what do I have to say about tomorrow beign a new day. Well tomorrow is indeed a new day as it will begin afte midnight today. but today is nto an old day as it is still continuing and is not yet over. if today is not an old day then it is a new day too. But it is no long er new as it has already started. once it has started it can not be new but since it has nt finished it is not yet finsihed it can not be old so what do we classify today as? it is a new old day or an old new day? Well whatever it is, one thing is certain, it is a day. It could have been night too because a day has 24 hours and in 24 hours a few hours are day and a few hours are night but we still call it a day. i hape i have managed to clear your mind on day and night and new day and old day. if yo are as confused as before, attribute it to MyLot.

Today is the tomorrow you worried about yesterday. I like that saying, although I try not to worry about tomorrow to much. I just want to make sure I make today a meanful as possible. Tomorrow will come no matter what, don't try to avoid it, just try to welcome it as a new start or a new begining. Great discussion!

Hi Bo'...personally I say Tomorrow never comes, mainly because it doesn't if you think of it logically it is Today, how many times have we or a person said I will do that/this tomorrow and then never done it...why not get it done the time you think of it and that is the day you say it, which is or will be today. Hope that doesn't confuse you anymore than you already are!! hugs littleowl

“Yesterday is history, tomorrow is mystery, today is a gift – that’s why it is called present.” –from Kung Fu Panda Tomorrow holds another chance and beginning for us. I guess that is what it means. I mean it does sound simple and silly and obvious but sometimes a lot of us don't really take it to heart.
