Look at Tomorrow ( #AtoZChallenge )


Looking at yesterday I'm thankful for places I've been and people I have known, but as I look at today I feel a bit stalled though still having hope as I look at tomorrow...



     Look At Tomorrow

         Life could always be worse and fortunately for me I don't think it ever has been for me.  After all I'm still here so I guess that counts for something.  Writing a memoir is something I work on continually whether it be actually writing or just thinking about my life.  That life has been a good one as far as I'm concerned.

         Still I'm not going to be content to just relax from now on while resting on my laurels.  Life is nowhere near the end for me as far as I'm concerned.  My days on this Earth could end anytime, but this has always been the case.  No point on dwelling on an end of things as I know them.  Life goes on for me for many more years I hope. 

          Looking at tomorrow I see dreams fulfilled and new adventures discovered.  I might be slowed down as years pass, but that slowing down allows me to savor the journey if I wish.  There are still new places to visit and people to meet.  There are music, books, and art yet for me to discover.  Grandchildren to watch grow and my own children to see flourish in their own lives.

           Life is worth living so I want to take advantage of as much as I can.   In some hopefully distant tomorrow I'll have plenty of time to be dead.  For now though, I'm continuing to look toward tomorrow and smile at the riches it sends my way...

          Are you generally optimistic about the future?   Is your life better now than it was when you were a younger adult?    What big things do you still want to accomplish in your life?

    1. Frederique, this life is meant to be enjoyed. At least that's how I see it.

  2. Plenty of time to be dead - that made me chuckle.
    Death means I enjoy eternity with the Father, but I want to enjoy my time here until that moment.

    1. Alex, "this is my Father's world" as the old hymn says and He provided it for us to appreciate and enjoy. But Heaven is the place I really want to be.

  3. I can't say I've ever been glass half empty or half full- just halfway. Just having something in the glass is enough for me. BTW, the second half of my mash-up went up today. Doing pictures from the past has been enough fun, I may just repeat it next time, God willing...

    1. Susan K, I'm ready for any opportunity that comes my way. Hopefully I'll recognize it when it does knock at my door.

  5. LOL, plenty of time to be dead. Great line. Being happy with our lives is 3/4 of the battle, isn't it?
