Your reply make me remember an article I read. That's about an athlete. Others ask him, which is your best performance? He answered, the next one.
At the very beginning, I think your answer is the best. For you have a good hope of tomorrow. The life with hope won't be bitter.
But I also remember a book named Vajracchedika-sutra. It says that there is no past, and there will be no tomorrow. You always live at the moment of right now. Now I agree with the book, just live at the moment of NOW! So today is the best day!
