“The best preparation for tomorrow is doing your best today.”
H. Jackson Brown, Jr.
I have never really worried about tomorrow. Seems to me that today has enough in it to think about without too much thought given to tomorrow. Not that I don’t ever think about tomorrow, of course, I do. I make plans for tomorrow and the days after I just don’t worry about it.
There are times when worry can creep in but I am good at shooing it away. I have learned time is too precious and moves too fast for worry. Some people who know me and know that I deal with an anxiety disorder may wonder about those two statements. But those who know me well will understand. Anxiety is a strange thing and maybe I will write about my battles with it someday but for now, I will just say it has nothing to do with tomorrow.
Really, today is all we have. We can prepare for tomorrow but there is no promise there will be a tomorrow. Doing your best today is important for this day, today. Tomorrow will just be another today…if there is a tomorrow.

What is that old saying, “don’t worry about tomorrow, tomorrow has enough worries of its own.” One day at a time is the best we can do. The only way to go.
It is the way to go. Today is enough.
Wonderful posts! Glad I found you!
Thank you, Tammi. The door is always open…
I agree. I am more concerned with getting through today in my best possible way. Hugs.
Today is more than enough for me. The older I get the more I understand that tomorrow is a dream.
Thank goodness for short vision…can’t see much further than right now.
That can be a blessing.
I struggle with anxiety periodically. The funny thing is that it started after I retired from a high pressure job. Other than rolling over a to-do list, I can’t worry about tomorrow. Today is enough work.
I agree, today has enough to take care of. Sorry about your anxiety…bummer.
You nailed it Patricia. We need to live for today, as who knows if there will be a tomorrow.
When I was young, I never thought about there being a time when my tomorrows wouldn’t be endless. Guess that is the way it is with youth. But now I know the tomorrows are fewer and the today’s are to be treasured.
God has blessed you with wisdom, Patricia. Great post. I struggle with anxiety sometimes. Multiplied blessings to you…
Thank you! Anxiety is a bummer and it does sort of sneak up on you. I try to remember to cast them away. Have a good day!
Good words for a Monday!
I hope all your today’s are good.
