One day I will ____________________.
We all have “One Day” dreams. My list is long, but a few that land near the top at the present moment are:
- Travel more
- Enjoy more sunsets
- Learn to speak fluent Spanish
- Create a blog featuring my travel photography
- Build a life in the tropics
- Have a successful online business
- Be fit and healthy
- Learn to surf (this one is a big fear of mine)
- Live happily everyday!
It’s becoming more present for me everyday that the “One Day” mentality is a dangerous one. We plan to do amazing, inspiring things while time is passing us by. It’s pretty standard that by the time people feel they are able to do the things they’ve always dreamed of, they have worked for the man their entire lives, with the standard 2-3 weeks annual vacation time, and by the time they retire, their bodies are no longer able to do many of the things we’ve always dreamed of.
This realization has been just another drop in the bucket that has started this journey for me. I have watched so many friends and people around me take the plunge, while I have sat back and watched with envy. No more!
If you want to do something, do it NOW!
Everything is temporary. Youth is fleeting. Our long-term health is unpredictable. Time is passing us by while we wait for “One Day” to come. We are not getting any younger! If you have a wave of inspiration to do something, go DO IT! Take action! Make it happen!
The only difference between you and the person you perceive to be living the life that you want, is that they took action and to create that for themselves. You can do the same!
Yes, it’s scary; I’m freaked right out, not gonna lie. But if you’re not scared, it’s not the right thing! If it’s too easy, it’s not the right thing. Fear is the universe telling you you’re on the right path. I’m not talking about mortal fear, but the anxiety and the nerves that come along with the unknown surrounding what you want to do. It’s healthy to challenge yourself. When we get too comfortable in life, we get bored and start dreaming of the things we’ve always wanted for ourselves. So, go DO IT! Live your life for you!
