- When my kids were little and in diapers, I dreamed of them all being potty trained.
- That day arrived and I was off dreaming of when they would all be in school.
- That day came and went I was off dreaming of when they would all graduate from high school.
- I dreamed of the day my husband would be sober and we would all be happy. He died suddenly and I was left to pick up the pieces of my shattered dream of a “Someday” that would never come.
What I realized from that tragedy was that while my life was happening I was not present.
I was off dreaming of another time that I thought would be better than the present moment.
Happiness was only an attitude of gratitude away. I had only to realize how much I had to be grateful for.
These days I have plenty of time to dream of “Someday” and all I find myself doing is soaking up the present moment and relishing in it gifts.
What I have learned is Someday is today and it is the best day of all, because I am able to to discover all the wonderful gifts hidden in it. I am happy to say I finally have found my “Someday.” It was here all along.
