The future can be a very scary thing sometimes. Do not fret. It is natural to fear the unknown. I always worry about what I will be doing in ten years, but like I discussed in last weeks post, worrying now about something so far away will not change things. In reality, the future is nothing that anyone should be scared of! Because ultimately, your future is in your hands. I really do believe this. It is what you make it. If you want it to be great, and you work towards making it that way, then it will be! As silly as it sounds, it really is that simple.
Yes, I know there are always those unexpected curve balls that life can throw at you, and sometimes it really is impossible to prepare for these. However, it is not what life throws at us that creates our future, but it is how we handle these situations. As long as you keep your head high and your outlook optimistic, you will find your way. The future may seem unclear for some, while others may have step by step plans for how the next few years will unfold; either way, nothing is set in stone. Take a deep breath, take it one day at a time. If you have big dreams, do something each day that moves you towards reaching it. If you don’t, spend a little time each day working towards finding one. It is absolutely okay to not have your life together right now. There is so much time ahead of you. Just take it one step at a time. Try not to fear your future, but rather look to it with hope (and also patience), because in the end, everything will workout exactly how it is supposed to.
Everything will be okay in the end. If it’s not okay, it’s not the end.
Have a great week! And remember – accept your past, live for today, and do not fear what is to come.
