Someday Never Comes

Someday Never Comes

When I was a young man, I lived a life in expectations that rarely resulted in things turning out the way I envisioned.  Before I was 22, I was in the military, I had a wife and two young children.  I knew that someday, I was going to make enough money, I was going to take my family on that nice vacation or buy that nice car or house.  Someday, I’m going to take my kids to do this thing, or that thing.  The thing is, …someday never came.  I never had enough money, I never had the time, things were never the right moment.  Those children grew up and out of the house never seeing ‘the someday’. 


My third child came into this world when I was still 37 years old.  As dense as I can be, I do learn things on occasion.  I had learned the hard way to just enjoy each and every day for what it is.  I started to learn how to live my life in appreciation, instead of expectation.  If I wanted to take my family for a vacation, I just did it, and the money thing worked itself out.  The time away from the business also just worked itself out.   This was an eye-opening lesson that has application in all facets of my life.  It works with my business, family, and personal relationships.  If you stop waiting for certain expectations, and just embrace everything for what it is, life becomes happier and more meaningful. 


I try to start and end my day with appreciation.  I appreciate my family at home and I truly love and appreciate my students, their parents, and the staff at Innovative Martial Arts Academy, and I really think, it’s this appreciation that makes the entire academy feel like a bigger family.  Let’s all make our ‘Someday’ happen today!
