If Tomorrow Never Comes

tomorrow

It’s funny how we all think we have more time when of a truth, all we have is just a moment. We go about our lives making promises…. I will write that song tomorrow, I will apologize tomorrow, I will tell her how I feel tomorrow, and I will publish that book tomorrow; as if we know what is obtainable the very next seconds. How certain are you that you will have tomorrow?
Weeks ago I lost a friend, a colleague and my teacher and that drove me down this path: what if I don’t have tomorrow? What if you don’t have tomorrow? What is that thing that I am supposed to do NOW which I think it suited for tomorrow and therefore procrastinate? This realization propelled me to make a list. At the top of my list was writing this article to wake us up, that the time is NOW, not a moment later; not tomorrow but right this moment.
Have you been hiding that your light for a very long time? I need you to realise that every new day you live to see is a function of GRACE, and the time to let that light shine is NOW.
Do you intend taking a vacation with your spouse to a beautiful and serene environment, (maybe Hawaii..winks) for years now and you keep saying you’re busy, let’s do it next year…..I think it’s time you do it, if you don’t create time NOW, when you think you are less busy or ready; your spouse might be long gone.
Perhaps you’ve tried everything and you keep failing and you’re just about giving up. Do I need to remind you that you’re still breathing and that is a sign you should try again NOW
Have you been dreaming about a lot of great ideas so much, that they scare you and you say to yourself I can’t achieve this, I am not capable. The real reason those Ideas seem so scary and unachievable is because you fail to take action, start NOW!
Have you been so focused on the big wins and often times forget to celebrate the little ones? Hey! Stop and celebrate how far you have come today because tomorrow’s win is still out of you grasp.
Have you been bailing on telling that special lady how you feel about her and you know God is leading you to her, and you want to spend every waking moment with her; you want to dance in the rain holding her in your embrace…..common, the raining season is here, do it already.
The truth is, I can’t write every possible scenario that you need to achieve now and you haven’t, but this I can tell you…. whatever you need to get done, NOW is the time, don’t procrastinate because quite frankly all you have might just be NOW(this very moment).
I will leave you with the lyrics of one of my favourite song on my playlist titled:

IF TOMORROW NEVER COMES
If Tomorrow Never Comes
Sometimes late at night
I lie awake and watch her sleeping
She’s lost in peaceful dreams
So I turn out the lights and lay there in the dark
And the thought crosses my mind
If I never wake up in the morning
Would she ever doubt the way I feel
About her in my heart

If tomorrow never comes
Will she know how much I loved her
Did I try in every way
To show her every day
That she’s my only one
If my time on earth were through
And she must face this world without me
Is the love I gave her in the past
Gonna be enough to last
If tomorrow never comes.

‘Cause I’ve lost loved ones in my life
Who never knew how much I loved them
Now I live with the regret
That my true feelings for them never were revealed
So I made a promise to myself
To say each day how much she means to me
And avoid that circumstance
Where there’s no second chance
To tell her how I feel

If tomorrow never comes
Will she know how much I loved her
Did I try in every way
To show her every day
That she’s my only one
If my time on earth were through
And she must face this world without me
Is the love I gave her in the past
Gonna be enough to last
If tomorrow never comes

So tell that someone that you love
Just what you’re thinking of
If tomorrow never comes

REST WELL FAVOUR CORNELIUS!!!
