think like a person of action : : act like a person of thought

Today, I celebrate my 37th birthday.


It wasn't too long ago that I looked at people in their 30's like they had one foot in the grave.

The funny thing is that I'm as old as "old people" were when I was in elementary school. Now I am finding myself as one of "those people."

Strange isn't it?

When I was in my college years, I thought that I had forever.

Now I'm realizing more and more the value of time. Like trying to hold onto water, it just slips through your fingers.

You blink and:

  • Your kids exchange diapers for graduation caps.
  • The 90's feel like 10 years ago.
  • You look in the mirror and see your parent staring back at you.

Think about this.

You are as young as you will ever be.

All of us have dreams on our "someday maybe" list that need to be invested into. It will never be the perfect time. Sometimes you have to MAKE IT the right time.

The trip you've been wanting to go on SOMEDAY.
The career change you're going to make SOMEDAY.
The bad habit you're going to stop SOMEDAY.
The good habit you're going to start SOMEDAY.
The conversation you're going to have SOMEDAY.

But when is SOMEDAY going to come?

How has that thinking worked out for you so far?

I'm not trying to beat you up. This is for me as much as it it is for you.


As I've been processing this in my own life, this thought has been hounding me for the past bit.

Why not let "someday" be "today?"

Please don't just close this post and move onto the next thing.

This may be the most important five minutes of your day, month or even year!

Think about the dreams that have been put in boxes and left in the corner of your heart. The ones that you said you'd do something about SOMEDAY.


What decisions need to be made? Make them.

You are worth it.
Your life is worth it.
The story you're writing is worth it.

And remember....

Today, you are as young as you will ever be.

I'm cheering for you.
