If Tomorrow Never Comes

You’ve probably heard about the island of Samoa skipping a day by now, but if not, here’s an abridged version of the story:  To align with it’s Asian trading partners, the nation of Samoa decided that December 30 would not happen — they would go directly from Thursday the 29th to Saturday the 31st, skipping over Friday entirely.

How can you skip a day? How can Friday simply not happen? People just decided, that’s how. Funny how many things in our world we think are fixed and solid.

Do you feel too old, or too young? Is it too late to change something big in your life?What ideas have you turned into brick walls?

Can you take a conception that isn’t serving you, and just let it go, like the Samoans did with Friday?

It might be easier than you think. Maybe that’s the frightening part.

Happy New Year y’all,

  1. i dated someone in new zealand once. that had to stop. you just can’t date someone who isn’t on the same day as you. not for long anyway. but yes, you CAN let go of stuff that isn’t serving you. and you can also be more of who you already are. two things i’m working on.

      Agreed. I’d say being on the same day is the minimum requirement for dating someone. Thanks for the comment Lisa!

    When they switched from the Julian to Gregorian Calendars they skipped 11 days, by the time the brits did it, it was 13. Time is real. Time differences are real. Dates and clock times are social conventions.

    And three cheers for Todd Snider!

    I believe we must let go of stuff that is not serving us sometimes it is very hard. Serving is not the right word for me, sounds too self centered. More like what brings us happiness and fulfillment and allows one to be truly ones self. I am working on it.

    I’m wondering when the last time was that you actually served me. . .
