How many times have you said someday? Maybe you were putting off something that needed attention but you did not want to deal with decisions at that time. ‘Someday’ can mean not now but later, or it can be an excuse for never mind.

Well, my ‘someday’ has shown up in full force demanding to be reckoned with. For example, deciding to face all those postponed decisions that were put off until ‘someday’ is here.

I thought I had a lot of time left to deal with those irritating ‘someday’–but I don’t. Is it time to face reality and get my self organized? Pick the most important ‘someday’ and deal with it. Then pick out those ‘someday’ that need to be taken care of and prioritize the most important or pick out the one that will be the easiest to take care of.

It is time to clean closets, get rid of stuff, and down size. I am having a problem with what I want to do with my library. Books I have had for fifty or more years, I just can’t let them go. So ‘someday’ I will get serious about what books to keep and what books to give away.

As I get older, the days, months and years fly by, but time stands still for no one.  I really thought I had a lot of time left and now realize I have to make sure my time is fruitful. All those things that I had to have, it is time to let them go. I have my memories and they will be with me forever.

So–self talk is needed here. That is the little voice that encourages you to get busy. It will never leave you alone until you do what you have to do. Self-talk has helped me to create a list of what I should do first. I did not realize how long that list was.

Now, ready or not, I am going to tackle one ‘someday’ per week. Maybe every other week would work be better? I don’t want to tire myself out by getting involved with ‘someday’.

I am having second thoughts about ‘someday’. I need to think this through before I make a bona fide commitment. What I need is a good excuse so I can seriously contemplate my future plans. How important is ‘someday’?
