Thought for Day – Prepare for Some Day

We go to school and college, preparing for some day. We go to university preparing for some day. Whilst at school we may not know what we are preparing for. By the time we get to college or university we might have a clue of what it is we want to do in life, or we might not. Nevertheless we prepare for something. Then, we land a job, we work, and we get comfortable.

Today, I find myself questioning the comfort zone of life, and thinking to myself, should I be preparing again? Should I be preparing for some day? Life has shown me that it keeps changing, and at times life forces me to change. Therefore, I take this quote as a hint for myself to prepare for something for some day.

I hope it inspires you to prepare for something, for some day.

I will prepare and some day my chance will come.

Abraham Lincoln

  1. Interesting and thought provoking post Bella. I think life is a mix of enjoying what we have and living in the moment and planning. Letโ€™s face it we wouldnโ€™t get too far in life if we didnโ€™t look at where we were going would we?

  2. I so agree with your post and also makes me think. We are truly always preparing for something … I find myself in new beginnings continually. And it seems yet again and again I am preparing myself and my mind ground to keep focusing towards my intentions. I watch my boys now going through the phases of school and towards college, their version of what they look forward as their future.

    1. You phrase it so elegantly, makes me smile. I think you are right to say ‘continually ‘, because that is what it exactly is. Life is continually preparing, adjusting, adapting, otherwise we become stagnant and smelly ๐Ÿ˜‰๐Ÿ™‚. Thank you for your comment and reading.

  3. Lincoln has some very inspiring words, but I have not heard this one. I love it.

    Living in the present moment is by far more important than living for the future. We mustnโ€™t harp on what could be, rather than focusing on what is.

    Have an amazing day!

    1. Yes, that is a great quote. Today makes tomorrow possible , therefore living for today is wise. I guess this quote is apt if one is overwhelmed or worrying about the future?

      There is another quote , by whom I can’t recall. “..Failing to plan is planning to fail…”

      Thank you reading and commenting and leaving another quote for me to contemplate. – I love a good quote.



    1. True will live in the present. But the preparation we do today makes a better tomorrow and I have seen that in my life. We have do some planning in life for tomorrow, whilst living full today. That’s my humble opinion.


      1. It could be anything. Like preparing for a career change, or preparing to save money. Or something that you can foresee that you may need in the future, but isn’t a reality today.

        For example, I heard a story that Nelson Mandela ran 4 hours a day in his cell, because thought one day he will be freed and would become the first black president.

        I hope that makes sense.
