Someday is a Disease

“For all of the most important things, the timing always sucks. Waiting for a good time to quit your job? The stars will never align, and the traffic lights of life will never all be green at the same time. The universe doesn’t conspire against you, but it doesn’t go out of its way to line up the pins either. Conditions are never perfect. ‘Someday’ is a disease that will take your dreams to the grave with you.”

-Timothy Ferris

  1. “Someday” is an essential part of a long, healthy life that ends peacefully.
    Always working, the mind must always have a dream. It’s not natural to live only in the “now”, but also in the “next” at every waking moment. Where to take the next step. Where to find the next meal. What comes next after the shadow passes overhead, or the footfalls rapidly approach?
    Who says delusion and denial are anything but good for you?
    Fantasy, imagination, fiction, dreams, books, the stage and screen, pretend and play.
    Every amazing invention we know of (including this written language) began as an unseen image inside a mind.
    How could we choose at what point we stop thinking of, imagining, dreaming our “somedays”?
    After my last child is born? After they are grown? After I achieve “success”?
    When I reach XX age? When I finish this novel? When I check off the bucket list?
    I myself have many irons in the fire as I cross the crest of 60 years of age.
    I imagine for myself a billion someday things I want to do; fishing with grandkids, camping with my son, watching a billion sunsets, counting a billion snowflakes. Filling my heart to overflowing, and seeking out vessels to fill with the excess.
    Building photo galleries, finishing this novel, and starting the next.
    There are philosophies to shared, great books to read, a whole planet to save…
    The last thing I want is for a single day to boring and unfulfilled.
    I’m glad to know my list of someday things will not run out before I do.
    Seek peace,

  2. Reblogged this on everthedreamerblog and commented:
    For years “someday” to me was a fond hope. However, I made up my mind I was not going to allow “someday” to rule my life. August 2 became my “someday,” also my INDEPENDENCE DAY!” Yes, there have been bumps and doubts along the way but I have never been happier–and I will never go back!
