How many times do you see something or want to do something and say SOMEDAY. Someday I will have the time to have a hobby. Someday I will take a walk on a warm beach. Someday I will take the time to have lunch with my friends. Someday I will live near my family. Someday I will start my own business...........
I realize that we can't always have what we want today, but in order to make someday an actual day, we have to take small steps to reach it. We have to know that we can't count on the moon being in the seventh house and Jupiter to align with Mars in order for things to be perfect. (Yes, I saw Hair on Broadway when I was 18)
So how do we start? Well, as I said, small steps.
1) Sit down and think about what you really want. For me, it is moving to Atlanta to be closer to my daughters and grandchildren.
2) Formulate a plan. I have contacted some apartments and I will be putting myself on a waiting list when I go in December for Christmas. I am also saving for the move.
3) Talk to family, friends, coworkers to get input on how you can achieve your dream.
4) Once you feel ready, just do it. Sometimes the only thing holding us back is fear of taking the leap.
I am going to try and remove the word someday from my vocabulary. I am going to start living more in those seven days of the week.
Do you have a dream that you have been putting off until someday?
