Why "I'll Start Tomorrow" Is Ruining Our Society

Have you ever said the phrase, "Oh I'll start it tomorrow?" Well if you have then try looking at stopping that habit and forming some new ones.

Why "I'll Start Tomorrow" Is Ruining Our Society

It is such a simple phrase and yet it is ruining the people in our society one by one. We as a race are becoming lazier by the second and the best thing that we're doing about it is making excuses for ourselves for why we didn't get our grocery shopping done today or why I didn't get my workout in or anything really. We are making excuses for ourselves because we don't want the harsh reality. That we are not choosing us and rather we are choosing everything else around us.

It's a hard realization to wrap around our brains, but think about how many times you have maybe thought about doing something and have really wanted to do it but you told yourself that you were going to start at the beginning of a new week so that you can start it fresh. Well, why not just start it tomorrow? What is so bad about maybe starting on a Thursday?

For example, I am notorious for wanting to start a specific running plan and I always tell myself that I'll begin it. However, one thing leads to another during my days and sometimes I just want to kick up my feet after a long hard day and relax. Then my relaxation hour turns into three and suddenly I have to head off somewhere or I need to eat dinner. Next, I can't workout while I'm doing something and I definitely don't want to go run a few miles right after I eat cause who would really want to do that? Finally I find myself thinking that I can go to the gym at 10 at night but nope I actually really want to stay in my dorm under my blanket. It is a never-ending cycle of me doing this all the time.

You know what I always say to myself? I say, "oh it's okay, I can start tomorrow."


People we don't want to continue waiting around for life to begin. Whatever it is that you keep putting off and not facing is not helping you in any way. This vicious cycle is hurting you more than anything because if you keep putting off things you may just wake up one day and wonder how many days you have wasted in your life doing absolutely nothing.

The time to start living is now, right here, in the present. There is no magical day for you to begin getting your life today that is going to help you stick it out and there are no magical words that you can say to yourself to help you accept the fact that you truly are wasting your life away the more you sit around and wait for the perfect time to start living.

I promise that life begins when you choose to start living and once you choose that, my friend then you are golden.

So go! Live! Do everything that you are putting off and start right now.

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

Waitlisted for a College Class? Here's What to Do!

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.
