Looking ahead what do you see, go ahead and do it just turn your head and squint your eyes if need be and look into the future, look as far ahead or as close as you want but take just a minute and ponder what you really see if you think about it?
What you really see is wishes and dreams of things you want to happen, in my life I have a new Grandbaby that will be born in the next month sometime and looking out the back door we just may have a colt any day, as far as the Grand Baby goes I know his name will be Benjamin and I hope for him to be healthy and a Papa’s Boy, Benjamin’s Mom has done real well as far as taking care of herself so I have no fears about this birth. The colt I also hope to be healthy but time will tell because the Mom is the rescue horse we adopted for Cindy and we have no way of knowing when she was bred, I hope for a healthy colt but that is a wish and nothing I can see until the colt arrives.
Looking ahead I hope for a long life but as you all know the Good Lord can take us any day and until he does we need to have as much fun living the life He has given us, Looking back a few of you have mentioned living in the moment and I don’t disagree with you because living in the moment is within our control, where Looking Ahead or Behind we have no control over whatsoever.
Look ahead and see what you can see coming up in your life and get ready for it as best as you can, Babies, Grandbabies, Jobs, Moves, Marriages, New Friends, New Mates, Losses, Death, Sickness, and Health are all possibilities, we all will have good times and sadness in our futures but as I have pointed out in many of my posts we can’t dwell on the bad stuff and spend our lives worrying about things we can’t change, am I trying to convince you or myself with this point? Not sure that any of us need convincing but it feels good to talk about it once in a while because I need reminded every now and then.
Looking Back I see things that make me both happy and sad, I see a lot of potential blog posts that make me smile, Looking right now I see a lot of good friends who grace me with their comments and suggestions about the things I look back upon, Looking Ahead I see many years of happiness filled with these same friends, new Grandbabies that I plan to spoil while teaching to ride that colt, and living my life out with Cindy no matter where we live or how long the Good Lord allows me to enjoy this fantastic ride we call life.
Looking Ahead gives us hope and stretches our imaginations with the dreams we are hoping to achieve, Living in the moment keeps us comfortable with who we are and what we are doing right now, and looking back makes us laugh, cry, remember, and see where we have been that got us to where we are in this moment.
I’m going to end this post just like I did my last one with one addition just because I think it fits here too. Always look forward and plan for new things, live in the moment to keep control on your life and sanity as this will help make living fun, and look back once in a while to remember but don’t dwell on things that don’t matter, Life is a blessing and if you can live it without worry then your life will be filled with joy, if you let worry consume your thoughts then life will pass you by before you know it.
