Adults too believe in fairy tales, and a common one is the myth of Someday. It’s a powerful fairly tale that leads you to believe that one day, demands on your time (and energy) will decrease, so you’ll be able to:
- Work less and come home at a reasonable time – so you can have a fulfilling personal life
- Have time to make, eat and enjoy healthier meals – so your take control over your weight and health
- Exercise or do a fun sport, at least a couple times a week – so you feel healthier and more alive
- Spend more time with your kids, spouse, friends – so you show how much they matter to you
But Someday never arrives. There is always something else on your to-do list that prevents you from taking space for your own life. And so, what matters to you takes second seat to what’s urgent or what matters to others.
Thing is, there is no someday, no second life, and no cloning available: there is only you, now, today.
