Someday is Not a Real Day

We heard this expression a while back and it got us thinking. It makes perfect sense. Someday is not a real day. That day we all dream about doesn’t exist, not technically. So, when we say “someday” we’ll be able to retire or “someday” we’ll write all the books we can think of, we’re not talking about an actual day. We’re simply talking about planning for the future.

It only becomes an issue when we’re looking toward that “someday” but doing nothing to achieve it. It means that “someday” will actually never exist in some way or another. We did nothing to achieve it. So, whereas it’s perfectly reasonable to look forward to a day where you have achieved your goals, whatever they might be, just remember that “someday” is actually not a real day. It’s just not going to magically appear. Wouldn’t it be nice if it did? However, I think that “someday” notion will be better appreciated if we earned it. We have to be willing to make things happen to reach a version of that day we have dreamed up. We also have to realize that the version of “someday” we have dreamed of may fall short of our vision. I think this “someday” has to be ever changing to meet our goals. Each new day is a new day to achieve what you set out to achieve in life. Don’t get caught up in the happily ever after “someday” notion. Go out there and do what you were meant to do. Make someday this day.

  1. So true. Thanks for this, it’s very inspiring. It always bugs me when I hear myself or others say “I’ll do it someday” cos its usually followed by excuses as to why nothing is being done about it right now.

    • It also bugs us when we hear other people say “I’ll do it someday”. We used to say it a lot. It wasn’t until a year or two ago that we stopped saying it so much, every once in a while we still slip and say “someday”, and started making things happen. That someday will never exist unless we work for it. The only thing we wish for is that we had changed our outlook sooner. Apparently, we weren’t ready to do so until a few years ago.

      Have a fantastic week!
