Start Your Somedays…Today!

Have you ever put something off
Because the timing wasn’t just exact?
Maybe you refused to take that first step
As fear stopped you in your tracks

How about refusing to begin your dreams,
Putting things off for a while.
Have you ever said, “Maybe tomorrow?”
Have you ever said, “Someday I’ll?”

Consider the intelligent lady
With the ability to make good grades.
She said she’d further her education
Once the bills were paid.

Or how about the older gentleman
Who wanted to travel the world around.
He said he’d begin his journey
Once his schedule began to slow down.

What about the aspiring young lad
Who had that novel written – in his mind.
He said he’d put it on paper
Whenever he could possibly find the time

And finally, that love-struck person
With secret admiration for that girl.
He would let her know his true feelings
When he was wasn’t feeling all that shy

The message of these examples,
I hope, is crystal clear.
The time to start your aspirations
Is now – not next year.

Because the bills might never get paid,
Your schedule won’t slow down,
Extra time won’t somehow appear,
Complete confidence won’t be found.

So if you wait to take all those risks

Until all the signals say, “Go.”

Your “Someday I’lls” will never come;

Your dreams, you’ll never know.

So begin that job or back to school.
Start to smile and remove that frown.

“Because sometimes you have to jump off that cliff;

And build your wings – on the way down.”

–Chris Neck, Virginia Tech
