The future ain't what it used to be.
Yogi Berra quotes
Let us not seek the Republican answer or the Democratic answer, but the right answer. Let us not seek to fix the blame for the past. Let us accept our own responsibility for the future.
John Fitzgerald Kennedy quotes
It is our character that supports the promise of our future - far more than particular government programs or policies.
William Bennett quotes
Attitude is the way you mentally look at the world around you. It is how you view your environment and your future. It is the focus you develop toward life itself.
For better or worse, our future will be determined in large part by our dreams and by the struggle to make them real.
As I look back on all that's happened, growing up, growing together, changing you, changing me, there were times when we dreamed together. When we laughed and cried together. As I look back on those days I realize how much I truly miss you, and how much I truly love you. The past may be gone forever...and whatever the future holds, our todays make the memories of tomorrow. So, my lifetime friend, it is with all my heart that I send you my love, hoping that you'll always carry my smile with you, for all we have meant to each other and for whatever the future may hold.
I can't speak for others whom I don't know. All I know is that we all have our own journey. My journey will be different from yours. We may cross paths in the future; we may not. I am not going to tell anyone what their journey should be. Life has its ups and downs. It's how we deal/cope with those events that gives us our character and lends empathy and sympathy to our lives. I don't know all the answers. I only know what has worked for me and I am willing to listen and help other people along their life's journeys.
The best way to secure future happiness is to be as happy as is rightfully possible today.
It seems that fears are all based on these things: illusion and future thinking, with a side order of 'What if.' 'What if that truck turns suddenly into our lane' 'What if I'm all alone at age 80?' What if? What if? What if? Yes, fears must be respected and learned about, but they must not paralyze us, or lure us into a half-life of being afraid all the time. I liked to think of my fears being driven away in a Rolls Royce (for it is true that once you face a fear, it loses all of its stuffing, and will sit quietly in the back seat and do as it's told.) I feel that fears drive us away from our true selves--innocent beings. I used to live in denial of my fears, and try to cover them up with a 'happy face.' I now see that my greatest growth is happening with an acceptance of my fears, of giving them voices and learning new ways to deal with them.
Forgiveness does not change the past, but it does enlarge the future.
