Someday Today

Like many, I have been writing since I learned to form these curved symbols that give our thoughts meaning. A means of record keeping, catching a moment, freezing the crash of a wave. While it’s impossible to stop time, slowing down a moment to relive and cherish is.

I write to examine my own human condition.

As an adolescent, my favorite mantra was “someday,” and I wrote it often.

Someday this will pass…

Someday I will be happy…

Someday I will meet the partner of my dreams…

Someday we will have a beautiful house…

Someday we will have a beautiful family…

Someday I will have everything I dreamed of…

Someday I will find peace…

Someday…

What about “today?”

The realization that happiness comes from within was enlightening, but painful.

“Today” broke everything I had built, but allowed me to put “someday” to bed.

Now someday is today, and today is everyday.

For all of you who dare to write, who dare to share, who cry to be heard, my heart beats for you. I love you.
