While on vacation recently in the Abaco Islands, on the outer rim of the Bahamas, I found myself on an important mission: taking the golf cart to the local market to restock our dwindling supply of the necessary ingredients for piña coladas.
I was stopped in my tracks en route by a welcome sign announcing a new resident’s beachside home. It read: “Someday Came.”
The obvious implication is that these folks decided to act on their “Yeah, I’m gonna do that someday” daydreams.
But it raises many questions, right?
Who are these people? What’s their story, financial and otherwise? Did they hammer this sign into the sand after scrimping and saving, finally realizing their retirement dream following a lifetime of toil? Or are they the professionally mobile couple with young kids you see on HGTV’s “Caribbean Life,” who decided they’d just had enough of the rat race?
I’m glad I don’t have the answers, because the big question for the rest of us is worthy of consideration:
How do we define our “someday”? How do you define yours?
