The Most Painful State of Being is Considering the Future

Getting older has many people thinking about what the future holds.

Pondering the unknown comes down to brooding and has us considering the worst.

Some of us worry about what the future hold while others are brave enough to put worry aside and create their own bright future.  We all know that what the future holds will forever be a mystery until it arrives, what some of us don’t realize is that we create the environment for that arrival.

When we stop brooding and being fearful of what’s to come we have more time to set in motions things we want to come.  So what does you vision of the future look like? What are your main concerns and how can you turn those concerns into something more positive?  When you consider the future in this way the pain of it will disappear.

Living longer and worrying more can have us lingering in desolation.

With the new predictions of retirement lasting 30+ years just sitting around worrying about it could take a long time. That worry can result in many more years of being constantly anxious about tomorrow.  Brooding and worrying have more to do with the bad rather than the good of what the future holds. This mindset to be sure can be downright painful when you spend your time focused on all the dreadful things to come.

Happiness in the future is what you make it

The good news is that you have more control that you might think.  Remember the proclamation of Dr. Suess – you have brains in your head, feet in your shoes, you can steer yourself in any direction.  If in fact, you have both them why not steer yourself in the direction of a wonderful future.

If you have read any of the other posts on this site you will know that it is our firm belief that life, living, and the future are what you make of it.  Additionally, we believe that as you think so shall you live.  If your thoughts of the future are of despair and unhappiness, then that is what you will receive.  If your thoughts are of freedom, adventure and joy then that is what it will be.

The choice is yours to make.  Here is a free gift to help you to get happy!
