Stop waiting for SOMEDAY

"Someday, I'll...."

How many times have you started a sentence this way?  Have you pushed things to the back burner, like forever? Do you understand that...

You waste your entire life waiting?

You wait for Sundays. You wait for summer. You always wait for the next big thing to come, the degree, the job, the partner, the time, the money. You wait because you tell yourself that you don't have the budget to travel, that you don't have time because of your job.

So you wait. Wait for the ideal situation to get away. 

Waiting for things to get settle down at work. 

Waiting to save enough to go out on a tour. 

Waiting to be happy.

Waiting for someone to fall in love with you.

Waiting for this...

Waiting for that...

Waiting for someday...

Waiting...

"Someday" is a brilliant sense of false hope you give to yourself to procrastinate. Although waiting can teach you a lot about patience and discipline, it can also mean that you're living in denial. You wait for an ideal situation that will never come.

Someday won't come. Someday can't come because it doesn't exist. It never had. It's a warm comforting blanket of illusion that you wrap yourself with to give a million excuses to not do the things today. 

If you realize that someday could be any day...

It can be today. It's the only day that matters, the only day your future depends on. 

Life doesn't wait until you're ready. You take a chance or you miss. At the end of the day, here would always be risk involved in anything you undertake. You're not 100% ready for anything in life and you don't have to be. You grow into whichever path you take.

You waste your entire life waiting, but what are you really waiting for? 

The clock is ticking.

  5. "Someday" is the result of our inherent fear of failure and self doubts. When i saw this post i decided that some day i will read it. Glad i did it today. Well done :)

    1. Maybe divide them into parts and add a specific date to it to make it a goal? :)

  8. Amazing post!! You really have a point , I totally agree with what you say . Waiting can be poison , it's just an excuse people use not to get out of their comfort zone without noticing that they are missing so much and could have done so much more with their life.
    Some people don't realize it until it's too late .
    Your words are really inspiring :)

  9. Wonderful post with a message that I think everyone needs reminding of once in a while. We always think that we have tomorrow or we have next year but the sad truth is that we may not, and in a way I think that humans being and knowing that they are mortal is a good thing otherwise if we knew we had forever then we'd become so lazy and not get anything done. Yet still we continue to believe in immortality, because we're too often afraid. This all got deep very fast aha, really enjoyed the post! Your worrying is so articulate and your thoughts are really well executed, hope you're having the best day lovely!!

    1. Hey Nabeela!

      I couldn't help but agree completely on your comment. We procrastinate daily thinking we have tomorrow but what if we don't? If we live each day as it's the last, we may live a happier life.

  12. such a super charged post. bold, naked, raw, sharp, piercing. like a samurai blade piercing through weakened procrastinator's hearts. ;)

    I think most of our waiting, which is nothing but procrastinating or in better words an excuse making habit, originates from the belief that we are not yet prepared for that one bold step we all deeply yearn to take. And even though that maybe true at times it turns into a habit where we keep on waiting with zero time spent on preparing for that step (or steps) and so when again confronted with an opportunity that probes us to make the move, we hesitate by repeating the mental affirmation, "In the future, I will be more skilled, more capable, more courageous and bold, I can definitely do it then."

    And it is also true that certain tasks demand us to have that skill or discipline which takes time and work, but at times, that preparation or training part we believe we need, comes to us only by shoving ourselves in the murky waters, the shaky muddy earth, and get covered in fear, failure and embarrassment and get out of it by experiencing all of our fears. Obviously it might not take just one act to totally dissolve our fears or transform ourselves. But that would be the right start and realizing that until we keep on hammering in that direction, being drenched again and again in what we want to avoid, or trying to avoid that spot we don't want to be seen in, we cannot own that spot, nor we can ever own ourselves, if we continue to hesitate.

    thanks for this stimulating post. gave me a good moment to reflect on my experiences.
