The year is narrowing down and some of us are about to step out into the real world for the first time. We are all moving in different directions, but there is something that we all do and that is use the word “someday.”
"Someday when I have … I will …" When I have more time, more money, when I settle down, I will finally buy this, focus on this relationship, spend more time with friends, become active. We all seem to think that life is never ending. We ignore the fact that there is only one 100% truth about life that we can all agree on. It ends.
But what if a doctor told you that you had one month to live?
My church is going through a book entitled One Month to Live: Thirty Days to a No-Regrets Life by Kerry and Chris Shook. It involves religious questions as well as general life questions, but it made me realize that people of all faiths and backgrounds suffer from Someday Syndrome.
I encourage each of you today to stop for a minute and think about how you would change your life if someone told you that you had only a short period of time to live. What would you do?
College is ending for some of us and I am sure that there are some regrets that people have, things they wish they had done. Imagine those building up your entire life. Don't let that happen. Today is a day. Let someday be now.
