How many times have you said, "Someday?"
Someday, I will start that new hobby. Someday, I will get control of my time. Someday, I won't be so busy. Someday, we'll get to take that trip. Someday, I will take good care of myself.

John Ortberg, author of Soul Keeping says, "The soul is NOT 'a theological and abstract subject.' The soul is the coolest, eeriest, most mysterious, evocative, crucial, sacred, eternal, life-directing, fragile, indestructible, controversial, expensive dimension of your existence.
