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!
