Have You Earned Your Tomorrow

By Edgar Guest

Is anybody happier because you passed his way? Does anyone remember that you spoke to him today? This day is almost over, and its toiling time is through; Is there anyone to utter now a kindly word of you?

Did you give a cheerful greeting to the friend who came along? Or a churlish sort of "Howdy" and then vanish in the throng? Were you selfish pure and simple as you rushed along the way, Or is someone mighty grateful for a deed you did today?

Can you say tonight, in parting with the day that's slipping fast, That you helped a single brother of the many that you passed? Is a single heart rejoicing over what you did or said; Does a man whose hopes were fading now with courage look ahead?

Did you waste the day, or lose it, was it well or sorely spent? Did you leave a trail of kindness or a scar of discontent? As you close your eyes in slumber do you think that God would say, You have earned one more tomorrow by the work you did today?

After months of anticipation, Jennifer Lopez has officially announced that her upcoming beauty line will be all about skincare. She posted a promo video with the caption, “This isn’t just a passion project, it’s a 30-ear dream. I can’t wait to share my skincare secrets with you!!” J Lo also dropped the line’s official launch date: January 1, 2021. The announcement comes along with another big moment for J Lo: she was also honored with the People’s Icon award at this year’s People’s Choice Awards. J Lo is also the cover star for WSJ. Magazine’s November Innovator’s Issue, and in her accompanying interview, she briefly told the interesting backstory for her upcoming skin-care brand. JLo Beauty, as it’s been revealed, has been a dream of hers since before she began dating her now-fiancé, Alex Rodriguez, who had a lot to do with why she chose to finally get it off the ground.

“When Alex came into my life, he was like, ‘Let’s build your skin-care company. This is a dream of yours. Let’s do it together. Let’s own it,'” she said. “It’s like when somebody opens up your eyes to something new — it’s like a broadened horizon.” Lopez and Rodriguez began dating in early 2017. The couple got engaged two years later during a trip to the Bahamas. That Rodriguez played a major role in the creation of the music legend’s new company isn’t hard to believe when you consider how much he champions her work. Later in the interview, Lopez mentioned that the reason their relationship has worked since the beginning is because they constantly encourage each other to grow.

 

“I think where we’re twin souls, or whatever term you want to use, is in the way that there are no limits,” she said. “That we’re limitless. That’s my thing, but he helped me realize how true that is. We can do anything. We both have that DNA—like, why not? Why can’t we build not one multibillion-dollar business, but three or four?”
