Time is a currency that doesn't replenish itself. It's limited and tends to be spent pretty darn quickly. So, why aren't you, and so many others, not taking this valuable currency seriously and investing it in yourself and loved ones? Why do so many claim 'Someday I'll do that.' or 'Someday I'll end this boring relationship.' or 'Someday our sex life will be better.'
Someday is now. Not tomorrow. Not next month. Not in January when you set your New Year's goals.
It's now. With each moment that passes by.
Which is why I'm trying to finish my work as quickly and effectively as possible so I can go spend time with my boyfriend. Don't get me wrong - I enjoy writing and if this post helps just one person, it's made writing it worthwhile - but at times I do catch myself spending more time with the computer than him. As a relationship and dating coach, I definitely know better. And so do you.
How we utilize our time is one of the most important decisions we make. Figuring out how to step out of our busy, modern world to accomplish what makes us happy can be overwhelming. And, wow, do I get it! When it comes to my own love life, I'm often guilty of thinking things such as 'Oh, we'll have time to take that romantic trip someday soon.'' because I'm not immune to the 'someday' syndrome. I don't think any of us are and that's why we always hear seniors pass their wisdom along of how time flies by. Or, as Dr. Seuss said... "How did it get so late so soon?"
Reminder: Nothing stands between you and fulfillment except for YOU.
So, we absolutely cannot take the easy way out and shelve what needs doing in order to be happy. Have you ever had a 'What if?' hang over your head? I have. It's not a nice feeling and a quick swift in the rear to remember that no, things don't always work out 'in the long run' unless we're pro-active.
Ask yourself this:
What aspiration/s are sitting on your shelf with an honest reason as to why you can't lift it off and live it? And if you do take it off the shelf, how empowered could it make you feel?
Or, how about this: Maybe you're afraid that if you do take time to achieve your goals, there may be failure attached to it. So, you procrastinate and/or play it safe by aiming for lesser goals. Such as staying in a relationship that doesn't fulfill you because it seems easier than breaking up and starting over. That's often a lack of self-belief and allowing that heart-breaking energy to penetrate your life is a time-waster that can crush ones' soul and place your 'someday' achievements in jeopardy. But that's another blog post for another day.
“A man who dares to waste one hour of time has not discovered the value of life.” ― Charles Darwin

Someday (def.) Someday means at a date in the future that is unknown or that has not yet been decided.
What is SOMEDAY that could be TODAY?
Thanks for reading along and much love,
