Now guys, this is a serious question . . . Can YOU see into the FUTURE??
I would tend to hazard a guess that many of you are saying NO. Perhaps there are a few that are saying yes - but what is this yes based on? Psychic ability? "Realism?" A stubborn sense of impending doom?

Well, first off, I am not going to be chatting about psychic ability (did you see that one coming?), I am not even really going to talk about "Realism" (that is an entire other blog post). I am, however, going to talk about the "ever impending doomers," you know who you are . . . you see nothing but grey skies, heavy rain, and lightening flashes skidding across your horizon. What will you say if I tell you the future is not going to be like this?
(I saw you over there, shaking your head in disagreement, I know what your thinking - "who is this person, who knows nothing about me, telling me that the future holds sunshine and bunnies, and flowers and rainbows???")
WAIT A MINUTE!!!!
I am not telling you your future will be all sunshine and bunnies, and yadda yadda yadda. What I am trying to tell you is that YOU DON'T KNOW WHAT THE FUTURE WILL HOLD FOR YOU!! So why do you you let yourself believe that it's all going to be doom and gloom.
Do you get my blog title now? "Can you see into the future?" Do you get why I am asking you this question? No-one can see into the future . . . the future is open, the future is a construct of planned for occurrences and unpredictable moments. Sure, in some instances those grey clouds will come your way, they will shudder and shake and make a mess of things . . . but as sure as the clouds come, they go, revealing a sunshine bathed path, edged with pretty blooming flowers, those bunnies, and that rainbow glittering in the sky.
Don't give into those future predictions of doom and gloom, remind yourself, "I do not know what the future holds, good, bad, exciting or sad, I will embrace it's nature, I will let it pass, and I will move towards it with enthusiasm and courage."
None of us can really predict the future (sorry Psychics), but we can move towards it and embrace whatever may come.
