What opportunities or obstacles will present themselves?
How will we react to these situations?
These are all great questions but also unnecessary at the same time. Because we have no idea. We can assume what might happen but tomorrow is unknown.
If that is true then worrying becomes meaningless. If we don’t know then why do we put so much pressure on our emotions to fantasize about the good and bad of it all?
We could argue that the present moment, the one you are in right now, is the most valuable and the one that is ripe for the most change.
Instead of spending energy on the unknown stressors of life put the focus on the present moments and work toward improving those. Incrementally, the future will most likely be a brighter one.
And if it’s not, we’ve at least put in the practice to handle it when it comes.
