I remember the first time I heard this spoken aloud. Nathan Scott, One Tree Hill. It immediately resonated with me. I memorized it. I thought back on it often. And I think about it now.
It's been just over 6 years since I turned 17. In that time, I graduated high school, and I graduated college. I took 136 credit hours over 11 semesters. I've been through nine day planners and four personal journals. I have dated boys and I have dated men who acted like boys. I've lost friends I thought to be irreplaceable, and I have replaced them. And I plan.
We plan, plan, plan for "someday." Which is fine. It's important to have goals and expectations and desires. It's also important to live. To enjoy. Because in a sense, every day is someday. You are who you shape yourself to be, and what you get out of life is what you put into it. Like they always say: the days are long but the years are short. Forever cliche, but forever true.
