Here's to the Future

We spend our whole lives worrying about the future, planning for the future, trying to predict the future, as if figuring it out will cushion the blow. But the future is always changing. The future is the home of our deepest fears and wildest hopes. But one thing is certain when it finally reveals itself. The future is never the way we imagined it.

Hello Marwa
It is a Meredith Grey quote.
No wonder that Shonda Rhimes was voted one of those who help shape the world.
The show is so inspiring. Do you watch it?

I completly agree with. the future is never as we imagined & it'll never be.

But I hope that it'll get all the good things to us :)

Thanks Om Hagar

I just sometimes like to remind myself that "right now" is all what I get. If I messed up now I may never have the chance to make it up ...
Yet, the future is the hope. We can't live without hope.

Is it the mercy of having hope ever?

Because we don't know we've hope to recover tomorrow, to succeed once again, to win after a big loss ..

This is a real mercy ..

Hello Sherif

Well, I guess hope is both a bless and a curse. It is a bless because hope makes us stand up after a nasty fall and it is a curse because it is the reason that made us fall in the first place. Don't you think so?

Have a great day my dear
