Is an odd thing.
I mean on one hand it’s so full of possibility, and unknowns… think of all the things you could achieve. Think of all that you will achieve. Think of all the TIME YOU CAN SPEND NOT HAVING TO THINK ABOUT WHAT YOU WANT TO DO.
Thought of like this, through basically a young person’s eyes the Future is full of promise and amazing things.
And then you get old. And then the Future is not so great. It’s just a sign that time is running out. A sign that you won’t be able to do everything you wanted to do. A sign you can’t even if you wanted to. Things you thought you would accomplish but didn’t….
I think maybe that’s what one of my greatest fears is. Waking up one day at age 60+ and realizing I never truly got to do what I wanted to do. The only problem I have now, is what do I actually want to do?
