When Will Someday Get Here?
I saw this frustrating sign (the one in the picture) the other day and it made me angry. Okay, yes, it’s a nice sign, and I know it is meant to be inspiring but as teens we hear things like “someday” a lot. And if we aren’t hearing “someday” we are hearing something like, “when you grow up”.
Adults like to use those words and phrases to encourage us, but sometimes it can do the opposite. What happens when those words get in our heads?
We start telling ourselves that we will be important “someday”.
We tell ourselves that we can have influence and change the world “someday”.
We focus so hard on who we will be and what we will do when we “grow up” that we forget to figure out who we are TODAY.
But when is someday? Is it a year from now? 5 years from now? When we are “adults”?
When will someday get here?
I don’t buy it.
I don’t think you will change the world SOME day. I don’t think you will be important SOME day. I don’t think you have to wait to “grow up” to chase your dreams and be amazing.
You ARE amazing TODAY.
This is what I believe, I believe you are changing the world RIGHT NOW because you are in it. You are important RIGHT NOW. You are amazing RIGHT NOW. Be who you are, change the world, be amazing TODAY because who wants to wait around for “someday”.
When will someday get here? It is already here.
