A Different Tomorrow . . . Reach

I came across this saying a few weeks back, and I don't remember from where, but I really liked it. I've heard variations over the years, one of the most famous being, " Insanity: doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results." (Einstein). If we don't push harder today, how can we expect tomorrow to be any different? How can we expect to be come better people, be healthier, or succeed at anything we do if we do today exactly what we did tomorrow?

Now, for some the sameness of every day is a good thing. They're happy with what they have and what they've accomplished. That must be a wonderful feeling. I haven't yet achieved the point in life where I'm content with where I'm at. I've accomplished much, but my dreams and aspirations go beyond who I am today.

In the end, all we have to do is be happy with who we are and what we've become. Fear has a way of holding a person back (it holds me back more often than I'd like to admit), but I'm always hoping for a different tomorrow. If that means pushing myself beyond my own limits, then so be it.

I love this son by Gloria Estefan. It conveys beautifully the message of reaching for one's dreams, pushing harder to achieve one's goals, and never giving up, all the while believing that anything we work for is possible. She sang this for the 1996 Olympics . . . so inspiring! It's worth watching often.
