See ya tomorrow… if it gets here… maybe…

Posted by on Monday, September 25th, 2017 @ 8:05 pm.

Okay, so now that the world didn’t end I have to come up with a way to get all my stuff back.

Ha!

Now as funny as that is, or was supposed to be anyway, have you ever thought about how you would feel if suddenly you realized: This is it! The world is ending right NOW!

For those of us who have had more than a couple of close calls in life from one accident, crap storm or unsuccessful ambush or another, we have gotten used to the idea.

Some of us even started living our lives, a long time ago, as if there is no tomorrow and it is indeed NOT just a day away.

Maybe that’s what makes some of us not only feel so different from most everybody else, but actually end up making those who cannot understand where we are coming from see us as different as we oftentimes end up feeling.

It’s a liberating thing to lay your head on a pillow every night knowing that you have done your best, busted your butt until you just couldn’t go any more, until you had no more butt to bust. 

That doesn’t mean you have accomplished everything you wanted to.

It doesn’t mean you have kept every promise you have made.

What it means is that you are mature enough to know that if the world is going to end and there is nothing you can do about it, that you spent every day in recent history and even that last day doing what you said you would and working on those promises you made.

Yes, even working on those promises on that last day knowing there will not be a tomorrow.

And that’s the difference between people who are talkers and people who are doers.

Don’t get me wrong, there are people who do what they say they will do.

These folks I call doers.

Then there are those who only think of themselves and get in the way.

But we won’t talk about the Almost-ers.

Then there are those who know darn well they wouldn’t lift a finger to help another person unless they got something in return and then it’s a maybe.

These folks I call Don’t-ers.

There are different levels of Doers.

There are those who do, at least until it becomes begins to get in the way of how they want to live their lives.

 Some of those Doers cave in as soon as they start being criticized by those around them (the Don’ters or Almosters) who at first praised and supported their efforts.

Some of the Don’ters and Almosters actually helped in the beginning because it made them feel good about themselves.

But then it became more like a chore and a feeling of sacrifice started to creep in.

And as soon as the Don’ters and/or Almosters started telling the Doers they weren’t actually doing what they thought they were or weren’t going about it the right way or weren’t trying hard enough, some of those Doers become demoralized and stop trying so hard because even though somehow they just knew in their hearts they were doing right and doing it right, the lack of support from those who were, in the beginning, gung-ho toward their efforts took a terrible toll.

Those Doers sometimes never get back on the horse, as they say.

They just drag through life, knowing they haven’t kept their word and worse yet, knowing they should have.

Then there are those Doers who remained focused on the promises they make.

They build their lives around keeping those promises and responding to those who reach out to them and expect those promises kept.

Most of these Doers make their way through life and the Don’ters and/or Almosters never really notice them.

It’s easier that way.

Then there are those Doers who spend as much time trying to overcome the ridicule and criticism as they do try to keep that or those promises they made, to come through for those, or that one person, counting on them.

The real Doer doesn’t know how to give up.

They realize that if they are someone’s only hope, they just can’t give up. 

Maybe because they have needed saved themselves and nobody was there and they remember how lonely and hopeless that felt and couldn’t visit that on another human being by not keeping their word.

Whatever the reason, Doers don’t give up, no matter what the cost.

It would do us all a lot of good to ask ourselves: if we were our own friend/ best/ only hope, could we depend on us? 

Are we the kind of friend we would want?

Are we the kind of person we would want to depend on to pull us out of the fire, to save us if we were being tortured, if we were in a situation where seconds felt like hours?

Would we never even think of giving up hope because we knew that if we said we were on our way, then we knew we would not be deterred by anything and as sure as the sun rises and tomorrow is really just a day away, we may not be there yet, but we can bet our life that we are on our way? 

And, not wait until it was convenient for us.

Not just wait on a nice, sunny day with decent temperatures while we are being tortured.

Are we the kind of person who would move heaven and Earth to keep a promise? That’s H E A V E N and The E A R T H, because they are not just words to real Doers.

Are we the kind of person we could count on to give up what they have to save us if that’s what we promised?

That means H E A V E N and The E A R T H. 

I don’t believe God would allow it to come to that, but whether you believed that or not, whether you had a way to verify that or not, what kind of a person are you?

This column started out as kind of a joke.

But it didn’t end up that way, did it?

Life can seem like that.

It ends up being more serious than we thought.

For those of you who find these questions too bothersome or emotionally troubling, you have my permission to stick your head back in the sand and focus on your pathetic little lives that, in the end, will amount to little or nothing, although you may feel good getting there.

You know who you are.

News Flash: Doers know who you are, too. 

One way you can identify a Doer is when they promise they will save you…

The other way you can identify a Doer is when they promise to hold you responsible for the wrong/ evil you have done or maybe allowed by either your action or inaction.

So ask yourself, do you have a Doer in your life?

And if you are one of those who should be held responsible, are you sure? 

Or are you just making yourself feel better?

But there is still time to do what is right, time to make a difference, time to follow through.

There’s always tomorrow and, for now, it’s only a day away…. For now.
