I hear people say and I have often said, “one day I will ___” or “one day when I meet the right person” or “maybe one day it will not hurt anymore”….
…”One day” can be a blinding trap to taking for granted the ability that you have today to take that jump and go for your dreams.
“One day” puts an “X” on all of the great people in front of you TODAY…are you REALLY seeing who’s right in front of you?
“Maybe one day it will not hurt anymore”, tricks us into believing that we cannot both hurt and heal, grieve and smile, be hurt and hope. What if embracing those around you now is the secret to moving forward?
Maybe we should stop saying, “One day”….we have no guarantee of it. Why forego today’s living for an imagined tomorrow?
We wait for the perfect moment, perfect person, perfectly happy emotions….what’s here today has every possibility of being our “perfect”.
