Some people, including Gandhi, said “Live each day like today is the last”. But, I don’t agree with that. I don’t think that philosophy applies to common folks like us. It applies if you’re trying to cure cancer or compete in the Olympics. They are the people with special missions, and every single day counts for them. But, I’m just a little guy (and I’m proud of it). I live my life as if I will live 120 years. I enjoy my slow and boring life. I like to daydream about my next 10-20 years (Driving Porsche and traveling to the Southern states for good food). I like the fact that I have a lot of unfinished personal projects.
I like to go to bed, thinking about what to eat the next day. My life is fuller because I believe the Sun will come out tomorrow. Yes, like the Broadway musical Annie. Annie presents the philosophy that opposes Gandhi’s teaching head-on. Annie has a valid philosophy that we still quote her to this date.
So, there you have it. Team Gandhi vs. Team Annie. Which team would you join?
Here are key factors to consider.
- Team Gandhi – You die tonight. Hunger strike. Assassinated.
- Team Annie – There is tomorrow. Cute dog. Lives happily ever after.
“Hunger” is a funny word – “Hunger!” “Hunger!” it sounds like something Tarzan would say to a lion.
I guess we don’t have to pick a team. We can meet in the middle; we shall enjoy life and try not to be lazy.
I don’t have a point to make in this blog post. Gandhi and Annie popped into my head, and I wanted to share this video. This is the best version of “Tomorrow”. Andrea McArdle is the best Annie. Even if you don’t like Broadway musicals, you must watch this once.
Please take care. I will talk to you soon.
