Hey Party People!
Today I want to talk about that someday dream. Why is it that we always talk about someday when it comes to our hopes, dreams, and desires? When you dream about the life you want have you noticed that you often place a future label on when it will come true? We say, “oh maybe someday,” instead of getting off our behinds and making it happen. If we want our dreams to come true, it's up to us to claim our desires with realness and not with a far-off wonderment of what could be.
It’s easy to look around and see what others have accomplished and think, Wow, they are an inspiration! But when we turn inward and ask can I do that too? We cower, we put things off and think maybe someday.
So I ask why are we waiting until someday when today can be the start of it all? It’s because we take comfort in the idea of someday. We enjoy having our desires float in the clouds because it allows us to keep the dream alive without having to act. It gives us hope to hold onto because when our dreams remain in the potentiality of someday they are safe, no one can take them from us, we cannot fail, and no one has an opinion.
Are you keeping your dreams in the clouds of someday? If so why? Do you actually want your dreams to come true? If not now, then when? If COVID has taught us anything it's that things can change in a minute. Someday as you envision, might never come.
I guarantee you just had a flood of excuses for why now is “not a good time”, or why it’s not possible for you (I know because these excuses bubble up inside me too!). There will be many reasons and valid obstacles that could be a barrier for some of you, but for most of you, these are just excuses.
Where are you putting limitations on yourself and telling yourself you can’t?
What excuses are you telling yourself to keep your dreams in the clouds of someday?
