All of us want to look forward to the prospect of a life that’s new and exciting. When we’re hurting, we want to know when there will be a brighter day. We all want to believe in a future that is better than the life we are living right now, as if that would make us happier and more content.
But aren’t we far better off focusing on the present moment where our choices exist, rather than the unknown future? The only moment we have control over is this moment. What we do today determines what our life holds tomorrow. We can’t change the future or the past because they are intangible, but we can impact the present.
Only from today’s vantage point can we even remotely see what our life will be from this moment forward, and that projection is based on never making another decision or change that will alter the course of our life. We never know what lies ahead.
Our lives in this world have been strategically designed so that we will not know what our future holds. We are here to reach goals that we can only achieve by interacting in a fallible world. Everyone’s destiny holds adversity and challenge. How we cope with the challenges that lie ahead depends on how well we learn from our past experiences and our level of awareness as we walk through life.
The miracle of life is that we do not know how our story ends. But we CAN plant seeds today for the future we desire and we CAN find comfort in our hopes for tomorrow.
