Someday or Carpe Diem

Someday I will get in shape.  Someday I’ll get organized.  Someday I’ll finish those books I started writing.  Someday I’ll pursue a job in my field and not let fear hold me back.  Someday I’ll take a trip to Holland.  Someday I’ll fall in love with my husband all over again.   Someday we’ll have to downsize.   Someday my son may get married.  Someday I might have grandchildren.   Someday I may be taking care of my parents and someday they will die.  Someday I will plan my will and living will.  Someday I will face the end of my life or someday my husband will die first.  If I continue to live in someday I will have regrets,  because I wasn’t intentional in pursuing my someday every day.  I will realize that I let life happen and did not seize the day.  All because I told myself someday I will do those things I want to do.

How do I make someday into today?  I believe each day or moment is an opportunity to make decisions that propel me to the best future I can have.  I cannot wait for someday, because it will never come and eventually it will be too late.  Therefore, I choose to seize today or better yet seize the moment.  I will take time today, despite the hour to plan what I can do to get in shape and to pursue a job in my field.  And my plan will work, because the other someday plans are rewards for the days where I am feeling challenged that day.  Today is my someday and my hope for my future.  Time to seize the day!

  2. This is a big challenge for many of us. How to turn wishes & hopes into reality? Can this hope be carried throughout the year, and not just a New Year’s resolution? Some people are able to do this well, at least in some areas of their lives.
