In the world we are living in today, we get caught up with so many mundane tasks, the frenzied life that we are brought up to face every single day. May I ask you, have you paused for a moment and asked yourself: What am I living for? Is this the life that I’ve dreamed of living?
When we’re young, we’re so excited to grow up thinking that life would be so much better. When we’re already adults, we wished for those days that we’re still young and have nothing to worry about but eat, play, sleep. Then we start waiting: waiting for Fridays, for summer, for Christmas, for holidays, for paydays, for the perfect moment. Why? Because during those times, we can escape from the rat race temporarily. Reality hurts, right? But it’s the bitter truth many of today’s generation are experiencing. Most of the time, we forget to live because we’re so busy making a living.
So, do you have to wait for the perfect moment to be happy, to work on your dreams? Because if you are, then you’ll be waiting for the rest of your life. The truth is, there’s no better time to get started than right now.
Waiting until Monday — or waiting for any time you feel signifies a “real” starting point — to work on your dreams, passion, or to just live the life you want only does you a disservice. If you’re ready to create something better for yourself, quit waiting for tomorrow. Quit waiting for some indeterminate point in the future. Quit telling yourself, “someday.”
Someday is not a day of the week. Start now, with who you are, what you have, and where you stand. It’s time to decide: are you waiting until Monday, or are you going to show up and get to work now?
So stop waiting until you finish school,
until you go back to school,
until you lose ten pounds,
until you gain ten pounds,
until you have kids,
until your kids leave the house,
until you start work,
until you retire,
until you get married,
until you get divorced,
until Friday night,
until Sunday morning,
until you get a new car or home,
until your car or home is paid off,
until spring, until summer, until fall, until winter,
until you are off welfare,
until the first or fifteenth,
until your song comes on,
until you’ve had a drink,
until you’ve sobered up,
until you die,
until you are born again
to decide that there is no better time than right now to be happy…
Make today matter.
