LOH COMMUNITY CONTEST #162- LOOKING FORWARD TO THE FUTURE IS LIVING LIFE.

in Ladies of Hive3 months ago

Life is lived moving forward and not backward, and we can only realise, learn from the mistakes we made in the past and work towards living better, improving as days go by, and having a fulfilled life that we most desire.

Looking at the questions for the 162nd Edition of the Ladies Of Hive Community Contest, which one of them is: Which would you prefer: to be able to see the future or to be able to see the past?, I choose to submit my entry on, to be able to see the future.

The past is gone and can not be changed or lived again. So, being able to see the future is what I focus more on, not forgetting where I am right now which is the present I am living. The present has a connection with the future. It is when we decide, plan, take actions to design our future. So, you can not seek for the future and neglet the present because living in the present influences our future.

Most times we picture the future as a period of time that is far off, probably over 3 years to come, but the truth is that, it is just a period of time yet to exist or we are yet to experience which can be tomorrow or few days from now. The future is actually within us, it is in our thoughts and we can create it as long as we can think it.

Knowing that life is not smooth, we are faced and tested with challenges that stretch our willpower, the ability to take immediate actions to proffer solutions to problems and also test our mental and emotional strength.

If I have the opportunity to see the future before time, I will have an insight of what it holds, the obstacles, challenges and ugly experiences ahead of me and I will get prepared to work towards facing and handling them successfully if they are inevitable, in order to make the future brighter and better.

Alan Kay said that,

The only way you can predict the future is to build it.

Handling challenges successfully makes us understand ourselves better, helps us realise our innermost strength which we were unaware of, improves our self-confidence, eliminates fear and gives us the power to face anything life throws at us. Overcoming challenges improves smartness, increases wisdom and knowledge. Also, the rewards and joy in the end is second to none.

For me, challenges are opportunities to become better in all areas of life and so we are to be grateful for them.

As God holds the future, who am I to seek the future without seeking the face of God? Oh! Life will definitely be meaningless, ugly and fruitless without Him.

I am living life everyday, seeking the face of God, building my future and looking forward to greater things I have envisioned in order to experience a better life and touch souls.

It is a pleasure to participate in this contest. I hope you enjoyed reading my blog and have some takeaways.

I agree with this part. Looking at the future will get us ready to face out presents because our future can be the next minute. Something can happen that will help pave the way towards our future... or not.

Hello dearest fashionable dreemer. Happy New Day. It is the music day for us, which means #ttt posts can come in. Hehe, and I hope you are ready to fill our ears with those lovely tunes. I waltzed in from #dreemport, for I am an amazing #dreemer. An awesomely made #dreemerforlife.

Exactly, the future can be the next minute, we need to always be ready to take the next bold step.

Thanks for coming around dear. For the TTT, i missed that yesterday. Hopefully will consider it next week.

Enjoy the rest of your day.

Yes, we surely need to.

Oh, dearest, well, next week is better. I hope you are well. Have a nice day, too.

Yes, I am well dear. Thanks so much.

You noted important points on your reasons for choosing to see the future.
I may have failed in some areas in the past which are likely to repeat itself in the future, and so I wouldn't want to fail again the second time.
I would like to see the future and all it holds and prepare myself for whatever it springs forth.

Thank you for finding my blog valuable. Only if we could see the future before time, we will be fully prepared not to be taken unawares.

Thank you.

I think I would rather look at the past. Maybe not due to my actions, but I would like to go back to spend time with my loved ones who are no longer with me.
But I get your point of moving forward and choosing the future, and that is a good point.

Yes, going to the past is for the good times we cherished and times spent with loved ones.
I appreciate you coming around. Thanks so much ❤️

Okay thanks.

Handling challenges successfully makes us understand ourselves better, helps us realise our innermost strength which we were unaware of, improves our self-confidence, eliminates fear and gives us the power to face anything life throws at us. Overcoming challenges improves smartness, increases wisdom and knowledge.

Especially those challenges we think we will never recover from. Like the saying What doesn't kill you makes you stronger

#dreemerforlife

Exactly, what doesn’t kill you makes you stronger and Kelly Clarkson did a nice song about it which I fell in love with.

Nice one dear I will like to hold up a great future

#dreemerforlife

That will be great.
