Thoughts - July 18, 2016

"Past and Present I know well; each is a friend and sometimes an enemy to me. But it is the quiet, beckoning Future, an absolute stranger, with whom I have fallen madly in love.”
― Richelle E. Goodrich
Sometimes I have to remind myself that the future is beckoning. Not just the hopes and dreams of the coming year or decade, but this very day is filled with future moments. The buzz phrase of our world today is to "live in the moment" which, granted, is sage advice, but it is the future that excites, that gets us off the couch. We are allowed to harbor expectations. Past and present are anchors, in the good sense, as well as the drag. The future is the excitement of new love, fresh ideas, soaring thoughts, possibilities. -Beth Almond Ford
