As you’re racing through life you notice things out of the corner of your eye and you sigh and think “Someday I will …”. The things you notice could be a house, a car, a family, a yacht, a picture of an exotic destination, a photo of someone skiing, catch a TV show about a destination you have always wanted to go, etc. You get the idea.
Well I’m here to tell you that someday will never come!
Okay you probably think that is a pretty bold statement to make and you’d be right! You may even think I’m full of crap. That’s okay. You can think that. But let me ask you this…how many times have you looked at a photo or video of somewhere you want to go and you thought “Someday I will go there”? How many times have you looked at a picture of something you want to own and told yourself “Someday I will own that”? How many times have you watched videos of something you want to do and thought “Someday I will do that”? How long have you been telling yourself that “Someday I will…”?
You see we very often tell ourselves “Someday I will …” but we never do. We get caught up in stuff. Someday is also one of those words that is non-committal. Someday can also be interchanged with ‘one day’ which is just as bad as someday. By saying either ‘someday’ or ‘one day’ it really means that you have no plans, don’t really want to, maybe you’re even afraid to commit. Someday gives you false hope and can actually bring you down. Think about the last time you saw something and thought “Someday I will…” How did it make you feel?
Most of you know that my husband had cancer and we had an 18-month battle full of uncertainty, fear, doubts, stress, surgeries, radiation, chemo, endless doctor visits, etc. It was also full of love, hope, determination, commitment and victories. During that time we learned the value of laughter and trust me when you are dealing with rectal cancer you need a sense of humor…a little craziness and warped sense of humor goes a long way! We also learned the value of a true hug and how it can convey what you are feeling and what you want to say when you can’t find the words. And the most important thing we learned was how short life really is.
We met some amazing friends along our journey. Many of them lost a loved one to cancer. During this time we learned of some of the regrets that people had. When talking to some of them about regrets most often they would say ” we always hoped that someday we would…” Someday NEVER came for them and NEVER will.
What have you been putting off doing or saying because you keep telling yourself “Someday I will…” STOP IT!!!!!!!!!
Someday is TODAY!!! It is time to STOP telling yourself someday and start putting dates on the things you really want to do. Take that leap of faith and commit to when you want to do what you keep putting off doing. Life is very short and for some even shorter. Don’t live a life full of regrets because you kept telling yourself “someday I will…”
Get up off your butt and start planning. Your first step is to commit to yourself that you are going to see, do or own whatever it is. Then your second step is to set the date you want to achieve whatever it is you want to do or see or own. Third you are going to do one thing towards achieving what it is you want to see, do or own. If you have a dream vacation you have always wanted to do call your trusted travel agent and start making plans. Put it in your calendar and let’s make it happen.
I met a woman a few years ago at a Meetup Group. She had just started attending a workshop on goal setting. Her first assignment was to take one step towards her goal. Her goal was to take a cruise the following year for her 25th wedding anniversary. Her first step was to talk to a travel agent to find out which cruise she should start planning towards. Within a couple of weeks of meeting her we had their itinerary selected and booked on a fabulous cruise for the following year for their anniversary. That is how simple it is. Stop making it more difficult than it needs to be.
I have heard many stories of families that wanted to take dream vacations and always thought “someday we will…” then tragedy struck and now that someday will never come. You never know what curves life is going to throw at you. Make your someday today!
