Some Day

Ah, this would be a nice spot to be, no? Some day. Maybe even some day soon. But not today.

"Some day" has become a bit of a mantra for me of late. As in, "some day I'll get to that; some day soon I'll get this done." I frequently find myself wondering when, exactly, some day is. It's not a particularly healthy spot for me to be in when I'm trying to live my life by staying in the fully living in the here and now. I've had an all-too-real life lesson in the fact that we're not guaranteed tomorrow and we better appreciate all the beauty, all the gifts, all the grace that today holds before it slips away.

Sometimes that's hard. When you work full-time and try to juggle household responsibilities and family obligations and hobbies and passions and, know, don't you? I'm not unique. We all deal with these challenges. I suppose it's part of the deal, the life deal, this learning to prioritize, to juggle. And sometimes life throws you a curve ball (like learning to type slower and with a lot more mistakes on account of a broken finger!).

Some days I play well with others; some days I just want to take my toys and run away...maybe to the beach to just sit and listen to the waves crash. Some days. But not today. Today I will breathe in and out slowly. I will say "thank you" for all the amazing gifts I have in my life that make it so full.

Today I will live.

What's the deal on your knee? I was gonna call but I didn't want to wake you up if you were trying to sleep after your Dr. visits. Nice post and get well-don't pick a fight with a horse would be my suggestion. Have a healthy weekend-put on your U2 shirt and think of October-Spence
