It's Already Tomorrow in Australia

 "Don't worry about the world coming 
to an end today.  
It is already tomorrow in Australia."

Charles Schulz, famous for the Peanuts comic strip, brought us laughter and insights into humanity during the 50 years he brought Charlie Brown, Lucy, Snoopy, Linus, and others to life.  He showed us that the foibles and pratfalls of life will occur - it is how we deal with them that makes the difference.  Every time Charlie Brown tried to kick that football, he learned another lesson on the necessity of picking himself up and getting through another day.
By acknowledging that Australia is already a day ahead, I think Schulz is saying to keep moving forward, and don't fret too much about what you do or don't get done on any given day, just stay in there and pitch - tomorrow might be better.  And if your problems grow too big and your stressors too stressful then just say, "Good Grief, I've had it," and then book a flight for Australia.  Their tomorrow might look even better.


  1. Great thought! And they can come here and do today over. I do like this quote and didn't remember it at all (or maybe never read it).

  2. I like this quote and will remember it when life is stressful. Thanks for helping keep it all in perspective

  3. Thanks for the feedback. Schulz offered a great quote with a positive life message. One day at a time!
