One Day

One day. It’s a trap! I don’t know about y’all, but when I was a child and I asked mom if we could go somewhere or do something, and if she answered, “Maybe.” That meant NO. Even now as an adult (hah hah) if I answer with ‘maybe’ I mean, I doubt it or even I don’t really want to, but I will.

Why do we do this? (I’m not the only one, right?)

Last Saturday, Hubs said something about zip lining. I answered, “One day we will.”

One day. Some day. Some time. All of these equals NEVER.

Some day you’re going to travel. Some day you’ll buy that fancy car. Some day you’ll go on a cruise. Pick a date. Set a goal. Do it.

Hubs suggested I say actually set a date and do it. Alrighty. We are going zip lining this coming up Saturday. Bet he’s regretting that. He’s scared of heights, so…most likely.

Be aware of what is coming out of your mouth. Are you saying something, but meaning something else? Say what you mean. Do what you say. Don’t be afraid to tell the truth. No. All together now, “No.” You don’t have to explain yourself. Be prepared, others will be shocked this word came out of your mouth. They might get whiny. Or hostile. If so, take a look at that relationship. A true friend will accept your answer.


Be true to yourself.
