The Future


The future the big unknown, do you worry about it?
I don't, I live in the here and now and honestly don’t give the future much thought at all, for a number of reasons but mostly because what happens, happens and I have little to no control over it so what is the point in worrying about it.
So if you had a crystal ball and could look into the future would you?
I kind of would like to look into the crystal ball but at the same time I don't know if I would want to know what the future holds.
Life is adventure and the thrill of an adventure is not knowing what is around the bend, well that is what I am told since I am not one for adventures for many reasons but the big one is that I am a chicken………………lol
However, it would be kind of cool to look at what my life would be like in say 5 or 10 years’ time, although I think if I could see what my life would be like then I would also like to be able to decide if I could retain or delete the memory.

I don't want to know the future. It might change the way I live now, which is a rather comfortable way of life.

Love,
Janie

I'm learning to go with the flow and not be too disappointed if things don't work out like I thought they would 5 or 10 years ago. You're right though- it might be fun once or twice to know how things will go~

I agree with you that there is no point in worrying about the future. No, I honestly wouldn't like to see the future. It might be scary and Might not like what I see!

I wouldn't look forward. I believe we learn our life lessons by living in the now and making mistakes.

I don't want to know the future but I can plan for the future. Like I need to get out of debt so the future will be better. Other than that, I don't worry about it. It would scare me anyway because I'm already an older mom and I don't want to know when I might leave this earth and my kids. That makes me too sad to think about it.

I know what you mean and if it not something I would like than I would rather not know

Makes me sad too, I like to say I will be around for another 50yrs but I know that isn't going to happen

I tend to live in the moment, but I believe that past history predicts future performance, so look to the past to see the future!

Update on mum
