Today is The Greatest

Today is the greatest
Day I’ve ever known
Can’t live for tomorrow,
Tomorrow’s much too long
I’ll burn my eyes out
Before I get out
~Smashing Pumpkins

Is there ever a day that is truly great, in every way? A day that you would like to relive exactly how it was without even changing a second?
I don’t think so.
There is so much good about this day, but there was just enough bad to make it a little less thank perfect.
Stuff in my head, stuff in my relationships, stuff in my interactions.
Unfortunately, the great stuff last as long as the day, but the other stuff lasts until tomorrow… And even longer.
I wish it was the other way around.

One thought on “Today is The Greatest

  1. The trick is finding a way to make the good stuff stick around and the bad stuff disappear. 🙂 My personal strategy is to tell everyone I meet about the good stuff. Passing pedestrians, cashiers who had the ill sense to ask me how I was, my boss, anyone– they all have to hear about how awesome it was that I blind-reached into my closet and picked out exactly the right outfit. And then the bad stuff? Well, I try not to dwell on it… bad stuff has a tendency to dwell even without my help. 🙂 It’s like glue, whereas the good stuff is like glitter– tiny remnants remain forever, but the bulk blows away.

    On that note, maybe we have all great days all the time and just forget them– because there was no glue to keep the glitter in place! 🙂
