Instagram of the Week: Someday Is Today

I saw this poster near the subway and knew I had to take a photo of it. It’s something I need reminding of every single day. I probably need it plastered to my wall. Wait. No. My head. How about you? How many of us have said: “I’ll start that project…someday.” “Someday, I’m going to… Read more »
