There is a strange place that I often go
It doesn’t take much imagination
In fact, it actually allows one to hold back on taking action on dreams and goals
Someday, I’ll stop and play,
when I am not too busy
Someday, I’ll slow down and enjoy the lovely swing on my back deck,
right now I have phone calls to make and bills to pay.
Someday, I’ll visit a friend and spend sometime catching up,
right now I have more important things to do.
Someday, I’ll spend more time with my parents,
when I have nothing else to do.
Someday, I’ll take a walk in nature,
when it stops raining and I stop working
Someday, I’ll take time to get to know the clerks in the market,
right now I’m too important to get to know them.
Someday, I’ll volunteer to help veterans,
right now I need to read a book about leadership
Someday, I’ll pay attention on long drives with my husband,
right now I need to check my emails and return phone calls
As one can see, I have spent a great deal of time in the land of Someday I’ll,
And this is only a very short list – it certainly could go on for pages.
There are no excuses, many regrets and a new appreciation that
I can leave this land of Someday Isle for today I am choosing to join the land of The Present!
