“Someday Soon” is a very pleasant, very poetic way of saying “never.”
Time is a thief, not an altruist. Very few things happen automatically with the passage of time that you would think of as positive. If you plant a tree today, it’s a better tree ten years from now. That’s pleasant, but it’s the exception, not the rule.
Learning is not automatic, and becomes more and more difficult to organically learn from simple experiences as you get older. You have to actually care enough to put in effort, You have to write, and consider – not just pass through those moments.
Some moments are for joy – if you’re walking through the park at sunset with a loved one, you can experience that for what it is. You don’t need to take pictures, because the moment itself is the most lovely thing. But some moments are for experience, for learning, for self-improvement. Take those seriously.
