Self Discovery Prompt # 13 – Fear for the Future

This Week’s prompt asks me to consider the following: When you think about your future, what do you fear the most? 

I’m not sure having fear for the future is very helpful. Not unless I have a crystal ball and can accurately see what the future holds… now wouldn’t that be great fodder for a story or two? Again, my experiences of late have taught me several lessons. One of them is that no-one knows what truly lies around the corner and if we were honest with ourselves, would we really want to? I’ve just heard the news that someone I knew close by suddenly died. She was around the same age as me, in her mid fifties. Although we weren’t great friends, it came as a shock and once again I took a step back and thought about living in the present. This has nothing about me getting older. I don’t store much by the number of years I’m clocking up. What’s the point? We all grow older.

So in answer to the question. I don’t fear anything because I have no idea what the future holds. I prefer the here and now, for tomorrow may never come.

“I’m not afraid of storms, for I’m learning how to sail my ship.” –  Louisa May Alcott
