Are you a someday person?

16th January 2020

This illusion of “someday” is very pervasive, soothing, and even tranquilizing.

But life doesn’t fit into this illusion: the daily newspaper offers reports of people dying in car accidents on their way to work everyday.

These people didn’t wake up expecting that to happen, they had plans to do things someday. They were certain that it was just another day at work.

Reality can be very cruel in its surprises and horrible when it intrudes on our hopes and dreams.

When we put pictures of our dreams, hopes, and wants into the category of “someday”, we separate ourselves from the immediacy of living.

Someday may never come. There is only now.
