Hi, I’m Tamela.
Let me ask you:
- Are you stuck? Do you feel like you’re running in place?
- Deep, deep down do you have this feeling there’s more to life, more to you, than is currently being expressed?
- Do you think you’re too old to change and start something new?
- Do you tell yourself someday you’ll get around to pursuing that calling? You know, the one that just won’t go away.
If you answered yes to any of these questions, you are not alone. Far too many of us have settled for a life unfulfilled. We go through the motions but lead empty lives.
We tell ourselves someday we’ll go for it. Sure, we have a multitude of perfectly good reasons to wait. It’s just not the right time. The kids are still in school. We’re too busy. We have bills to pay. Our elderly parents need our help. Work is too crazy right now.
It would be selfish to go for it today.
Or would it?
What happens when we wait for someday
When we wait for someday, we hold back. We live a “less than we’re capable” kind of life. Are we really able to give our best to those we love the most when we ourselves are not living at our best?
In settling, we teach our children and those within our circle of influence that it’s perfectly acceptable. They, in turn, pass the belief along to those they influence. And Someday Disease spreads.
The good news for anyone afflicted with this dreadful condition is that it’s perfectly curable. We are the cause. We are the cure.
Someday is for those who hold back. Why not make today the day you take one step? Just one step. Empower yourself today.
Fulfillment doesn’t necessarily come after you’ve achieved your big goal. Fulfillment comes in the pursuit of something meaningful.
Purpose of this blog
The purpose of this blog is to offer encouragement, inspiration and resources to help readers live fully today and overcome Someday Disease. We’ll focus on personal development, perspective, career, lifelong learning, and reinvention.
I am a writer, speaker, wife, mother, and caregiver. My husband and I, along with our two Jack Russell Terriers, live just south of Nashville.
I’m also a recovering bystander. It was in my former career as a human resources professional that I noticed how prevalent and devastating Someday Disease is. I not only saw symptoms in the workplace, but at the market, in social circles and, most clearly, in the mirror.
Through a series of experiences, I was awakened to the gravity of our limited time, individual purpose and vast potential. I realized that to make what we want someday a reality, we must take actionable steps today.
My hope is that you will find something of value here to help you in your own battle with Someday Disease.
Today is a great day to begin. Let’s go!
