We've all said it "Someday I'll_______" Just fill in the blank. But there is no someday, there is only this day, this moment, right now.
Yesterday is gone beyond our reach to change it; through regret or anger or desire. Tomorrow is not a promise but a chance to do better, do more, do over. Today is really all that we have, the here, the now.
Make yourself a promise, next time you hear yourself say someday ask yourself what stops someday from being this day?
We will do the things that we make a priority. If you want to travel make it a priority. It doesn't have to be a life changing or once in a lifetime trip. Maybe a road trip to a neighboring state, maybe a stay in a hotel in your city to see the sites like a tourist . Maybe it will be a once in a lifetime trip, whatever that means to you. Whatever kind of journey you want to take make it a priority this year.
Just get out there. Go and see what the world has to offer you. Shake up the status quo. Not all of our travels will be enlightening or even fun. Some of it will challenge us and make us wonder why we bothered. But it will always be an adventure, a departure from the day to day. There's something to be said for that and I for one embrace it.
