Here is a picture of a beautiful day in Fountain Hills, AZ. It illustrates a wonderful way to understand both where we are and where we would like to be.
Look at the road of life.
As we stand where we are now (on the corner of our past and present) we are fully aware of what has already happened, and we also see clearly a little of what is coming soon; but we have no idea what lies ahead around the bend. We can’t see that far, and we are not meant to either.
We all have a past, present and future, and the future is the part that is unknown … or is it! We actually work on it everyday in the present as we go forward. We use our knowledge from the past and what we can easily see in the present to move ahead carefully and positively.
The best way to help it along, come out good and the way it is meant to be (whatever that is) is to keep moving on your own road with a loving heart for yourself and others.
Wait! There is one more thing. Make some strong decisions about what you would really like to happen, not just focused on one thing but including a broad picture of many factors. “You can’t get there unless you know where you are going.” You may not be able to see into the future, but you can add your own vision to it; and that is exactly what will help to make it come out close to or even exactly like the way you would like it to be.
