I can't remember my future

A lot of my friends have told me about things they dreamed of as children. How their life would be when they grew up. Some had their husbands picked out and their wedding dresses ~ some where they would live and what their house would look like. Some even knew how many children they wanted and what they would call them. I don't remember any of that. i don't remember picturing my future.......I always said that I would have 6 kids.That's about it. Beyond that I don't remember dreaming that way. Why?  I'm not really sure what the answer is but I do know that nothing I could have dreamed would have held a candle to what my life is now. I feel very blessed, lucky, fortunate etc., to be living this life. Maybe I did dream but just didn't share it out loud and therefore it didn't stick in my memory. Maybe I did dream but thought it would never come true so I stuck it waaaaaay in the back of my memory. I'm really not sure but it gets me to thinking what MY children think of THEIR future?


  1. Maybe you just had a pretty contented childhood and adolesence. I think I visited my "happy" places often because my life was so full of conflict.

  2. Well I would like to think that was true wasn't. maybe it was so full that I only had time to focus on the present and getting to the next week instead of the next 20 years?


I truly appreciate your comments and look forward to reading them!
