Hi my dear steemians!
How are you all?
I hope everyone is well!
I'm back. I've been away because I've had many commitments related to my artistic and speaker career and some health problems and I'm glad to be with you all here again.
Once we set our minds to doing a particular thing, there comes another element in play which will ultimately make everything more difficult.
This element is known as the problem of the variables; the idea that many things might go wrong in the journey ahead or you may even forsake the pursuit.
Because, after all, there is nothing we collectively do better than changing our minds on a daily basis.
Variables are troublesome. Sometimes, there are inner variables and dynamics that stand in our way, and sometimes, there are problems posed by the outside world.
Whatever the case, unfulfilled promises are something that we all have to accept as a part of our social life.
In the book Through the Looking Glass, the White Queen offers to gift Alice with jam as a compensation for her help, but there is one important condition.
Alice can have the jam every other day, but not today. She can have jam either tomorrow or yesterday, but never jam to-day.
This part of the story is an allegory for unfulfilled promises; the idea of waiting on something when the next day comes but never really fulfilling the bargain.
Now, there are two sides to this: promises that are not fulfilled by other people and promises that are not fulfilled by our own selves.
A lot of people tend to make empty promises and not stay true to their word. These people will always offer you jam tomorrow, but ‘tomorrow’ here is always an abstract concept…
… because it is always today. Tomorrow is never going to come.
We are not here to complain about other people, so let us talk about how ‘jam tomorrow’ is affecting our lives on a deeper level than we care to admit.
When you postpone something, you are adding to the pile of things that you have to do.
For some people, the pursuit of their goals and dreams is ‘jam tomorrow’ and their supposed beginning will never see the light of day.
The concept might be interesting to hear or understand for the first time, but it is actually quite tragic when you think about it…
… the idea that some things are just never going to happen because we are preoccupied with our procrastination and excuses.
‘Jam tomorrow’ is not just a nod to unfulfilled promises, but a representation of our greatest shortcoming; which is our unwillingness to do the work that must be done!
A BIG HUG!!!
