June 24--Someday

It does not do to dwell on dreams and forget to live.  --J. K. Rowling

    Someday. Someday I'll be rich. Someday I'll be happy. Someday I'll have ________. Someday I'll lose weight. Someday I'll exercise. "Someday" is infinite and in the future. Life is now. Daydreaming is fun, no doubt. It is useful if we use the practice to create the baby steps of today that actually lead to dream fulfillment. Dreaming without action carries us away from the present where life is happening. We miss a lot. 
    I suspect we have all known someone who was living for retirement and passed away shortly after achieving that milestone. Being in an unsatisfying job tends to put one into "survive until" mode, where life passes one by in the anticipation of the big event, whatever that is. 
    There is something in every day to appreciate--waking up, coffee, bird song, air conditioners, electricity, flowers, transportation, food, home, loved ones--the list is endless if we simply pay attention. 
    Gratitude makes for good living,

Tony Robbins
