Good morning – just a thought for today
THE PAST versus THE FUTURE
2 things are certain in our lives. We are born and we die.
For the last 2 years I have been on hold waiting for my future to appear. Yesterday I got a blow and I truly don´t know what to do at the moment but something will happen, that is for sure.
I am a person who likes to plan the future and in October last year I did something which was supposed to make my future what I wanted it to be.
Nothing turned out as I had expected and the consequences are grave. I got the blow yesterday and my life collapsed in a way. I did not want to wake up this morning and just wanted to sleep and forget everything.
This of course is not possible while I am breathing, I have to wake up in the morning and my live continues. This got me to think about the past and the future and where the future really is.
In my mind NOW this moment, the future is NOW.
The past is gone and I can not do anything about that except perhaps learn something from it.
Life is a journey and sometimes there are hurdles and sometimes the road is clear and no hurdles, but it always moves.
When thinking about the future and what I can do to make it what I want it to look like, I have to accept that my future is NOW, this moment.
I can put my head in the sand and blame others for what has happened, but I prefer to be responsible and take the consequences.
I have gone through a lot during my life, just as everyone else, and sometimes I have blamed others and shouted and screamed in my desperation, but sometimes I have just cried and looked towards the moment, to my future that exact moment, and somehow everything has worked out.
I have an idea about what the lesson is this time. I am going to make the most of this lesson and learn so I won’t have to go through it again.
Somehow, I always get tools if I look for them. Few days ago, I got an email and there is a road to recovery from the sadness and despair. I have to make an effort and look really hard at my self-image and change what I can. The guidelines make sense to me and I am going to make my future, this moment at least, a peaceful moment for myself.
Blaming me or others for my situation is not going to solve anything, but taking action will work.
I wish you who reads this a good future and hope you will make each moment count because we never know how long the future will last.
