Am I the only person who grew up dreaming about the future? I remember being sixteen and journaling about what would happen when I graduated high school- where I would work, who I would marry, where I’d live, etc. My vision was so clear I could taste it. Luckily, many of those things came true…even more luckily, some of them did not. Can you say high school boyfriend? 😉 Anyhow, I believe having clear visions was what helped me to be successful throughout my life.
I suppose it’s a part of my type A personality, but to this day, I still plan ahead. It gives you something to look forward to, to aim for, an aspiration. Considering I’ve been doing it my entire life, one would think that I would have no problem envisioning my life healthy and fit. For some reason, whenever I try to do this, I cannot seem to get a clear picture. It’s like those movies where the person loses their memory and then can only see a fuzzy, incomplete picture when he/she tries to jog their memory.
I decided that maybe it might help me to write down my vision-stream of consciousness-and see where it takes me (so don’t mind the grammar, spelling, punctuation, etc. or lack thereof).**
