Do you ever wish you had a crystal ball?
Has your future ever been revealed by a fortune teller?
As a young boy I would day dream about the life I wanted, the things I wanted, the ideas and the desires.
A crystal ball would have provided me the future so I would not be moving forward unaware of what that future had planned for me.
A fortune teller would have told me the future and provided me the information early on that would shape me into who I am today.
As a young boy, I would day dream about my life I wanted, my things I wanted, my ideas and my desires.
But sometimes it ends up totally different than what we envisioned.
Most of you know the events of my early life; the major depression, the suicide attempts, the self-abuse, the sexual violations as a child, the marriage, the sons, and the divorce. Later in my adulthood there are the relationships, the self-identity realization, the therapy, and finding that special someone. Today, it has been 5 weeks since my surgery to remove a tumor on my bladder. Yes, my cancer was caught early and yes, it can easily come back again to visit in the future.
As a young boy, my day dreaming never included the events that have occurred in life through today.
As a young boy, my day dreaming never included the things that are in my life today.
As a young boy, my day dreaming never included the ideas and the desires I have in my life today.
If only I had a crystal ball or a fortune teller.
What I thought I wanted and needed turned out to be totally different in my life today.
I am not living the life I envisioned; my life is better than what I dreamed about when I was a young boy. Yes, there were events and experiences: hardships and misfortunes – assisting and helping – successes and feats – failures and doubts. But my life today is not near to what I envisioned as a young boy; it is better than what I ever could have dreamed of.
There is no crystal ball or fortune teller that could have foretold the beautiful life I have today. I am lucky: I am blessed: I am fortunate. A person is in my life that I never envisioned. Soon a world will be in my life I never envisioned.
He and I are retired and we are in the process of downsizing and planning a move to the next location of the next chapter in our lives. As time proceeds I will reveal more about the move, its location and the plans for our next chapter.
As a young boy I would day dream about the life I wanted, the things I wanted, the ideas and the desires. My day dreams never included what I have in my life today.
