How is the year shaping up for you so far? Have your predictions come true, or did you have to face a curve ball or two?
To be honest, I didn’t really set myself a list of resolutions for 2016. First, I am not really that kind of people who really set some goals and work hard to accomplish them. Second, I believe that the unexpected things that we never think about them are,in fact, the most expected things that happen to us, when we are being too busy managing what we have to expect in the first place. But, this is just me and I am sure that there are many people who prefer to set their goals for every year and try hard to work them up.
To predict what will happen to us in the future is something very important today for many people to make their visions, to set their goals , to find out their ambitions,and to know what they precisely want. Ultimately, to see things clearer and make the right plan for those visions, goals, and ambitions that they have always wanted. To foresee is many people’s new power to control what would happen next and to create your own future.
To future utility ,we foreshadow our new big jobs, our fancy new dresses, our new big homes, our new cars, our big arrangements of marriage, engagement, or divorce, our new reading list, our educational plans, our coming new-born babies, our money savings… too many our(s) to count and expect. Expectations so high, based on very calculated analysis, measures, some wishes and hopes that would create within every one of us some sort of delusional satisfaction that there would be a better future. A future that you are totally in control of.Is man really capable of controlling his own future? to create it ? to hold it? are we really aware of the magnitude that we possess, that we can make history?
I know that an answer to this questions will need very calculated analysis, but, I am not into the calculated analysis. I am more in the random uncalculating analysis, still not aware of what I am capable or incapable of,still dwelling, still unaware of history or circumstance.
Sometimes, I get mad at myself, feeling that I may be the only one with this things in mind. I decide to replace random with planned, incapable with capable,and unaware with aware. It just does not seem to last long, very soon that decision mitigate quite sharply living more space for randomness to fill the place.
I just want to assume that facing a random unexpected curving ball … or two may be more exciting than facing a calculated expected one…Just don’t panic, both ways can work.
