DailyBlog: Looking Into The Future

*** 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: What do you see when you look into the future?

I honestly have no idea. I used to be really dead-set on what I thought I wanted in life, and then extremely upset and confused when certain things never worked out for me. Since learning to let go of what I believe I want and/or need to be happy, I’ve found peace and acceptance in life. Because of that, I really don’t look too far into the future. I look at things sensibly, of course, such as making sure that I’m being finanically responsible (mostly), taking care of my kids (furkids), etc, and I do have goals and desires, but as for what my life may look like ten years from now? That could be anybody’s guess. My life could be very similar to what it is right now (and that wouldn’t be a bad thing.) Or maybe it could be completely different. I’m okay with having no idea. I’m okay with knowing what tomorrow likely will bring, and what next week and next month, but not next year, or five years, or ten. All I can hope for is that I don’t ever end up in the dark places that I’ve ended up in the past. I don’t ever want to feel the way that I felt at my lowest points. I hope that I’ve learned from those struggles, and that I’m wise enough to prevent them. Whatever my life may look like in the future, I hope I’m where I should be. I hope it feels right. I hope I’m still at peace.
