I Think Someone Forgot Tomorrow Will Be Better…

For me the great thing about writing a blog is that there are no deadlines.  I haven’t written in a few weeks and its given me the opportunity to sit back and observe a lot and then write something that I feel can be of value to those that take a minute to read what I’ve come up with.  Over this past month, I have observed quite a bit.  One thing that I have observed is that there are a lot of unhappy people in the world.  I’m not talking about depressed, just in a funk that seems to last day after day, after day (you get the idea.)

For a number of people things have turned from hope for a better day to the malaise and routine of going from day to day accepting what they feel is their fate (at least for the moment.)  It’s very easy while “stuck in the matrix” to lose faith that there is something better in store for you.  I, for one, would like to encourage everyone to continue to believe that there is a better place in life waiting for you.

It is amazing to me the number of people that are willing to offer discouraging words or people who say the first negative thing that comes to their mind without regard to respect for you as a person.  First, let me make a distinction, just because someone makes an observation or has an opinion that isn’t positive does not automatically make them or their statement negative.  What I am more so referring to is that there are people who offer rude and oftentimes unsolicited comments to people they know or even people that they don’t know.

With all of the negativity in the world and the less than ideal financial/social conditions that we’re living in it may be hard to keep a positive perspective in hopes of having a brighter “tomorrow.”  With that in mind, I would like to offer the following observations:

  • I think that somewhere out there is a person that forgot that they are a beautiful spirit.
  • I think that someone forgot that they are worthy.
  • I think that someone forgot that they do deserve better.
  • I think that someone forgot that with great power comes great responsibility.
  • I think that someone forgot that they owe it to themselves to do more with their God-given talents.
  • I think that someone forgot that their opinion of themselves is more important than the opinion that others may have of them.
  • I think that someone forgot that others often times wouldn’t know what pains them unless they share it.
  • I think that someone forgot how to dream and let the current conditions of their life today not be the parameters that they move in tomorrow.
  • I think that someone forgot that it’s better to give than to receive and didn’t remember that extending themselves positively to others can cure them of ills they may face.
  • I think that someone forgot that sacrificing for others doesn’t mean that you lose yourself and what’s important to you in moving toward a brighter future.
  • I think that someone forgot that thoughts are sown and reaped.  Therefore if thoughts of lack and limitation are sown then the actuality of abundance is almost certain to not come.
  • I think that someone forgot that loving yourself in a healthy way that’s respectful of others is necessary in creating an environment where they will receive love.
  • I think that someone forgot that loving others, as they would want others to love them is the foundation of the Golden Rule that creates reciprocity, only if they initiate the love they want to receive.
  • I think that someone forgot that God’s delays are not God’s denials and that this too shall pass if they are wise enough to grow from the lessons of the current conditions.
  • I think that someone forgot that forgiveness is a blessing that we all have the ability to give.  However, just because they forgive does not mean that they have to receive that person in their life back in the same capacity.  By not forgiving one actually brings more harm to themselves than the person/people they are against.
  • I think that someone forgot that the results experienced today are not just the results of yesterday’s decisions, they are the results of the accumulation of the last 5 years of decisions.  What should be done today to make 5 years from now a better day?
  • I think that someone forgot that there are times that “suffering breeds character, character breeds faith and in the end faith shall not disappoint.”
  • I think that someone forgot that tomorrow will be better than today by declaring I will be the difference maker and game changer needed to make it happen.

Much love and take care of one another – “we all we got”…VA

  1. This is very powerful, and very real to me right now. Thank you!

  2. You said something VERY key: “I think that someone forgot that thoughts are sown and reaped. Therefore if thoughts of lack and limitation are sown then the actuality of abundance is almost certain to not come” Many of us don’t realize how much power we possess over our own lives and how much control we have over what happens in it (*Not everything, But most things*)! The mind and the tongue are very powerful!

    Thanks Vince. I clearly know that I’ve forgotten a lot of things. This was much needed!

  4. Milo Edwards Says:

    Vince, thank you for the reminder of the beauty of being and pointing out all the great things I have in life itself. I’ll continue to be the difference I want to see in the world. Knowing my future is boundless and possibilities infinite.

    Thank you for being you!

    I also have to repost one of your statements: “I think that someone forgot that God’s delays are not God’s denials and that this too shall pass if they are wise enough to grow from the lessons of the current conditions.” EXCELLENT VINCE!! I constantly advise my friends how just because you have not received the blessing “you” feel you deserve, does not mean it is not enroute. You first must PREPARE yourself to receive what is heading your way by making sure you are ultimately where you need to be. Otherwise blessings will continue to pass you by until your lesson is learned. An excellent read, and thanks for the very powerful points, and reminders to keep us all on track…CYD

    Thanks Vince.
    I especially appreciate the reminder that God’s delays are not God’s denials, and this too shall pass. Sometimes we tend to forget that we are not here of our own volition and therefore things don’t always work out in our time. We also forget that we have to be open to the lesson if we are to move forward. Someone once told me that very smart people tend to try and do things before God ordains them, and thereby we contribute to our own dissatisfaction when things don’t go the way we have planned. Being open to the lessons and opening my eyes to my blessings is how I will finish 2009.

  7. Cheryl Smith Says:

    Well done my friend. I appreciate you sharing your light with anyone who wants to stand in it. I was reminded last month that a “no, does not mean never; it is a not right now.” You are a blessing and thank you!

  8. As always Vince, very inspiring and much needed. I truly enjoy your blogs! In fact, you’ve inspired me to write a blog today and I’m linking your blog so folks can come over for some soul food too!

  9. Great read!! I needed this today!! Keep them coming Vince for you never know whom you may reach or teach in your words. Much respect!!

  10. As always, I appreciate encouraging words. To that end, I would like to turn your observations into my affirmations:

    I am a beautiful spirit.
    I am worthy.
    I deserve better.
    I accept the responsibility that comes with power.
    I owe it to God to do more with the talents He’s given me.
    My opinion of myself is more important than the opinions others may have of me.
    I am grateful for His angels (my friends) with whom I share joys and pains.
    I dream BOLDLY and in sincere belief of the fruition of those dreams.
    Today’s circumstances DO NOT define the parameters in which I will move in tomorrow.
    It is better to give than to receive; extending myself positively to others can help cure them of ills they may face.
    Sacrificing for others doesn’t mean losing myself; what’s important is moving toward a brighter future.
    Thoughts are sown and reaped; therefore, if thoughts of lack and limitation are sown then the actuality of abundance is almost certain to not come.
    Loving myself in a healthy way that’s respectful of others is necessary in creating an environment where I will receive love.
    Loving others as I would want others to love me is the foundation of the Golden Rule; it creates reciprocity, by first initiating the love I want to receive.
    God’s delays are not His denials. This too shall pass when I am wise enough to grow from the lessons of the current circumstances.
    Earnest forgiveness is a blessing that we all have the ability to give; therefore, I forgive earnestly. Even when I do not receive that person back into my life in the same capacity, if at all. Not forgiving brings harm to me. It’s not about that person. It’s about me.
    The results experienced today are not just the results of yesterday’s decisions, they are the results of the accumulation of the last 5 years of decisions. So I start today doing what will make 5 years from now a better day.
    I am remembering that “suffering breeds character, character breeds faith and in the end faith shall not disappoint.”
    Tomorrow will be better than today because I will be the difference maker and game changer needed to make it happen.

    Loving myself first … then others …

  11. “I think that someone forgot that they owe it to themselves to do more with their God-given talents.”

    I especially needed to hear this one. I have talents I’ve rarely used if at all in the past few yrs. God didn’t give them to me to waste away. I have to remember to use them to His glory!

  12. Good Shit VA!
