Instead of living one day at a time, how about two? What’s wrong with two at a time?
Live today cognizant of how you want to feel tomorrow. That gives you more control over what you do today.
No ‘Last Supper’ scenarios. Doing for one last time whatever you want to do before the big push tomorrow never results in a better tomorrow.
You instinctively know that to be true – that tomorrow you will feel worse, increasing the probability of another ‘Last Supper’, and another and another.
Alcoholics Anonymous may fare better by changing their ‘One Day At A Time’ motto to “Two Days At A Time”. That makes one think ahead a little more to secure tomorrow as a good day. It’s an insurance policy. Money in the bank. I put my order in early by one day. Today, in advance, I’m securing my future for tomorrow.
I like it.
I like being in control of the guarantee implied.
