Tomorrow Girl is a quirky tale delivering a timely reminder about the importance of mindfulness and what can happen when we allow ourselves time to slow down…
Slow down Tomorrow..
“When Tomorrow was a baby, she ran before she could walk. ‘Slow down, Tomorrow,’ said her mother. ‘You’ll fall.’ But Tomorrow kept running.
She ran to kindergarten. ‘Hurry Mama, I don’t want to miss out,’ said Tomorrow.
She ran to school. ‘Quick Mama, I don’t want to be late,’ said Tomorrow.
‘You’ll catch up with the next day if you keep rushing,’ said Tomorrow’s mother.”
Yesterday, Today and Tomorrow
Tomorrow rushes through life and is always onto the next thing.
Yesterday dwells on the things that went wrong in the past and is too frightened to try again.
Today stops to look at the world around them and enjoy the things that are happening right now.
Today sees so many beautiful things that Tomorrow has never noticed as she rushed by – maybe she should slow down after all?
Themes of mindfulness, worry, friendship, connection and slowing down are topical, as anxiety spikes among primary-school-aged children.
Tomorrow Girl is a timely tale, as more and more people begin to rush through life, causing our kids to forget how they can live in the moment.
