It’s no surprise that I like music. I especially like songs with meaningful lyrics.
In her song “Waiting for Tomorrow,” Mandisa poses the following to herself (and listeners): “I don’t wanna look back and wonder if good enough could have been better.”
What a challenging thought! Imagine if we tried to apply this to all of life.
I think a better strategy is to think about the principle of this lyric. When I am depressed, I often settle for what little bit I can get done. Sometimes that means just crawling out of bed and getting to work.
I think the challenge in this lyric is to try to push beyond just good enough. If I am struggle with depression one morning, maybe try for something even a little bit better than what I have done.
After all, what am I waiting for anyway, tomorrow?
