This Or That…

Would you rather see ten minutes into the future or travel ten years into the past?

3001 This or That Questions -chartwell books

If I was asked this question in the past I know for a fact that I would have answered differently.

My answer today: Travel ten years into the past

Let me first explain that my option to travel 10 years in the past is not to make a life changing decision or to do something to change my future.

10 years ago I became

I became part of the woman I am right now. Back then I couldn’t see it. But today I can definitely see it and I celebrate the hell out of this woman. She experienced a lot. She overcame a lot more.

As painful as it’s been, I wouldn’t trade it. Not even the saddest of the sad moments and situations. It all played a part in shaping me into the woman I am.

Believe me when I tell you that I haven’t always been real namastè, forgiving, understanding or caring. There was a point in my life where I was shootdadink…for those of you who aren’t familiar with the term, here’s a video for you.

I didn’t care about anyone but myself…

My answer 10 years ago: See ten minutes into the future

See…I hadn’t realized the joy of living in the moment and enjoying the little things like hearing, seeing, and feeling. I always wanted to know what to expect. I wanted to know what would happen in the future so that I would just know and so I could have some sense of controlling the outcome.

I grew into this person that I am and it damn sure wasn’t easy. I’ve had to go high when they went low. I’ve had to suck it up and roll with it. I’ve had to learn to forgive. I’ve had to endure some real hard shit. And it wasn’t until I lost my Mom that I learned that even when you know the outcome you’re still not prepared. You can’t simply “get” ready. You think you can…

So why not enjoy the little things now, instead of wishing you had later? If you know the future, that will be your focus. Your concern, your worry. What if you don’t see what you had hoped for? What if you saw something great but you self sabotage it?

Enjoy today…the moment. Sit. Listen to yourself breathe…and really think. It sounds amazing. It feels amazing…not everyone is able to do so…cherish it…

If you had to choose, what would you pick and why??? Travel ten years in the past or see ten minutes into the future…

Just an average silly, nerdy chick. That's weird in probably a million different ways, sharing my sometimes fucked up life with you. Showing others that they should enjoy life, because there's always someone in a worse situation.
