DailyBlog: How Will Today Matter in Five Years?

** The first three books in my six-part dystopian series have officially made their way out into the world! Check them out!
For the sake of blogging, self-exploration, and contemplation, I’ve been slowly making my way through answering questions from this list

Today’s Question: How will today matter in five years from now?

To be honest, I feel like, in many ways, this is a nearly-impossible question to answer. Part of the concept of the butterfly effect is the fact that one seemingly insignificant decision can set a person’s entire life on a completely different course, but there’s no way to know or predict ahead of time where that will eventually lead us. In the bigger picture, I don’t think that fruitlessly worrying about how any individual day will matter five years from now is beneficial to us, but I do think it’s important to live each day with a few simple goals relating to positivity for yourself and for those around you. My goals are to not be a thorn in anyone’s side, or more specifically, to be a positive person in the lives of those around me. To be someone that others know that they can come to if they need to vent and feel assured that I won’t repeat anything they say, someone who is nonjudgmental if they need some advice, someone who has their back and supports them through their struggles. I don’t know what my life will be like five years from now. I don’t know what my friends’ lives will be like five years from now, but I hope that by being the friend that they deserve, today, it will make the good times even better, and the bad times less lonely for all of us.
