The discipline of waiting

Written by hootenannie on February 12th, 2008

Someday, I will have all 4 hubcaps for my Honda. Someday, I will not have to use milk crates as furniture. Someday, I will climb the cliffs of Cinque Terre. Someday, I will own a very grown-up chocolate brown couch. Someday, I will read the classics. Someday, I will have medical insurance. Someday, I will be a dog-owner. Someday, I will learn to be comfortable in my own skin. Someday, I will have income. Someday, I will feel a bit more stable.

But not today.

Today, I will buy a new filter for my thrift store purchased Brita water pitcher. Today, I will search for a long butane lighter to figure out how to light my gas stove. Today, I will live in Nashville. Today, I will be thankful for a car that starts. Today, I will eat a dinner of ham and cheese samples at the grocery store. Today, I will smile during a nightly phone call. Today, I will wrap myself in my red coat and wool socks. Today, I will look forward to someday.

And that is enough for today.
