Confessions - 3

It is not only that I can't see me in 5 or 10 years from now. It is that I can't see me 10 days from now. I am that messed up.

I'm in a stranger place kinda .. I can see myself in ten years, but I can't see myself in 10 days!

I'm ALWAYS scared that way .. :S

You are not messed up, you are just realistic..!

@ Ibhog
It is really strange that you can see yourself in 10 yrs and not in 10 days! How can you be so sure? At least 10 days could fall into the now category, not really but it is even shorter that short-term :)

@ M
You really think this is realism? ya3ny it is not a turn off when a person lacks future plans?

no it's not a turn off in fact it might be a turn on to expect the unexpected and live mysteriously.(i can't believe my self what did i just write?!!!) don't listen to me Shimaa.

It is really relieving to know it isn't a turn off :)
And I am always expecting the unexpected ;)
I can't not listen to you M :)

Have a good day

Why some people think that having future plans contradicts with living your life expectingly? Those are two different issues.

You can live without having specific plan that will lead you to a specific object, but you gotta have some border lines that takes you somewhere around the source of your happiness in life.

Thats how it goes for me at least.

Shimaa Gamal said...

This is completely healthy Ahmad.

so, what are your plans for future? How do you see yourself in 10 years?

Ahmad said...

It's not easy to answer that, because I haven't figured out that specific plan yet, but am figuring out my happiness and I started moving towards it, am not sure about the whole 10 years because it seems cloudy after the first 2, but I know am on the right way and it will get clearer for me with every step I make till I figure it all out. all you need is a vision and believing that you deserve your happiness.
Kinda complicated I guess

I like to live in the here and now :-) 10 days into the future don't exist yet, so why waste energy better spent on more entertaining things on that.

Shimaa Gamal said...

@ Ahmed, good luck in your journey. And keep this spirit all the way.

@ Jessy, this is exactly how I feel. There is no point of waiting or planning. Right now is more important.
But sometimes the living in the right now isn't enough, at least for the people around us

Ramadan Kareem for you and everybody who read since I comment on Ramadan!

My personal thoughts are simple: we should not worry or scared to death about how we will be after (x) days/weeks/months/years, rather we should ask ourself what we want exactly, then try reaching it through a flexiable way. Check this post by me Positioning Oneself for more reflections.
