The Future is Blank

Do you feel anxious when you start to ponder on the many possibilities that await you?

When your age starts to make you feel weak and incapable, do you take a step up and demolish those feelings of insignificance? You have gone through your roughest experiences all these times, yet you are still here, reading this sentence. You are living, breathing, and trying your best to continue and move on. I appreciate you, dear friend, I really do.

The memories you have garnered in your past are the keystones to the future you will face soon enough. The future is blank, and indeed, you never know what things are coming for you. Then, with one snap, everything is either making or breaking all so suddenly without a moment’s notice.

A wise thinker by the name Albert Einstein once shared, “Never think of the future; it comes soon enough.” We all know that the future is always so unpredictable. We do not know what it is until it happens, and by the time it does, it is not the future anymore. We constantly search for ways to determine our tomorrow. Just as the greek deities sought the visions from the Oracle of Delphi or how people seek the aid of fortune tellers to tell their destinies.

The future is a flexible stretch in time; there is no absolute value to which that describes one’s tomorrow.

And, in such a way, the future is always blank. A determined future does not exist, nor does it benefit anyone in this world. However, when you go about life with a destination, you will have a future set for you.

As said by the lovely former first lady of the USA, Eleanor Roosevelt, “The future belongs to those who believe in the beauty of their dreams.” A dream is something you work hard for. It requires time, energy, and effort all the same. And at the end of every tunnel, a light awaits your embrace.

So it won’t matter how the future is a blank slate; just keep going until you find your days.
