It’s easy to get caught up in the daily obligations life hands us. Stress from work or running a business, incessantly checking emails, dealing with traffic, or whatever your life hands you.
This sometimes makes it difficult for us to stop and smell the roses, so to speak. Smelling the roses could be literal, or it could mean hugging your family, spending time with your friends, or doing your favorite activity – it means something different to everyone.
The one thing we all have in common though is that we all need to do it. Because, there will be a day…
There will be a day when some of the people you know, will be the people you used to know, so enjoy their presence now.
There will be a day when you wake up and all of the problems which seem to be destroying your life now, will feel like they just happened once in a dream – so always remember you will move past it, whatever you’re going through. You’ve beaten hard times before, and you’ll do it again. So far your success rate is 100%.
There will be a day when you’ll no longer have the opportunity to tell someone you love them, so do it now.
There will be a day when you’re no longer physically able to do the things that you enjoy, so don’t put them off. “Someday” is not a day of the week.
There will be a day when you may need someone’s help, so don’t burn your bridges.
There will be a day when someone needs your help, so make sure they know you’re there for them.
There will be a day when you can’t remember how insulted you felt when that person said that thing, so don’t let it bother you too much.
There will be a day when you wish you had started today. So, start today.
There will be a day when you look back and wish you’d taken that risk. So take it.
There will be a day when you realize nobody ever said “I wish I spent more time working” – so take the afternoon off.
There will be a day when you wish you had talked to that beautiful girl in the bookstore, so go for it.
There will be a day when you wonder if the nice guy you put in the friend zone might have made an amazing husband, so give him a chance.
There will be a day when you wish you’d stood up for yourself or someone else, so don’t back down.
There will be a day when that person you haven’t talked to in years is no longer around, so make that call.
There will be a day when you realize that the people you thought were always judging you were too caught up in their own lives to care, so don’t worry about them.
There will be a day when you feel like you’ve been living the life you’re “supposed to” instead of the one you wanted to, so follow your heart.
These days might come tomorrow, next week, or in 30 years from now. There is no way to predict what happens in life or how fast things can change, but one thing is for certain: There will be a day when you can live your life to the absolute fullest and pursue the things you love…
And that day is today.
