Pondering About The Future

Sometimes I can't help but ponder about my future.

I ponder about the struggles I am going to face and the joys that I will have.

I ponder about where my career will take me. How much farther Nuffnang will grow and where it will be in 5 years.
I ponder about the money I will make and the money I will lose.

I ponder how the ups and downs of business will be for me, and how experiencing success or failure will change me.

I ponder about which friends of mine will leave during the hard times, and which will stay.

I ponder how my parents will age and how much time I have left with them.

I ponder how I will take care of them and love them as they grow old.

I ponder how my brothers and sister will grow up and who they will end up marrying.

I ponder who will be walking down the aisle to me one day and what her smile will be like.

I ponder how much I will love her and how much she will love me too.

I ponder how beautiful it would be to wake up next to her every day for the rest of my life.

I ponder how sad I will be when I see her cry, and how happy I would be when I see her laugh.

I ponder about the many places in the world that I would love to take her to.I ponder about being with her "For Richer or Poorer" and "In Sickness and In Health"

I ponder about what I would do if I ever lost her.

I ponder about the family we would have together and how our kids will be.

I ponder if I will be able to provide my family with the best of everything but yet something tells me that at the end of the day, all they will ask from me is my love.

I ponder if my children will love me as much as I will love them.

I ponder about the places that I will travel to for work and the time I will spend away from home.
I ponder if I will ever make a mark in my life.

I ponder if I will make a positive impact on another person's life.

I ponder about the regrets that I will have in my life and the mistakes I will make.

I ponder about the lessons I will learn.

I ponder about how I will miss the memories I had gained in the past...

But I look forward to the ones I will make in the future.

I can't wait to live life!

Brain: "Pinky, are you pondering what I'm pondering?"

Pinky: "Uh, I think so, Brain, but balancing a family and a career ... ooh, it's all too much for me."

jennykoo said...

That's a lot of pondering. And applaud you, that nowhere there in between ponderings you end up drifting off the Pondering Path and into depression. I think that's what loses most people. :)

Life is to be enjoyed to the fullest, indeed we ponder about everything but its the pondering that keeps us going for in life!

If we know what will happen in the future i am sure it ain't interesting anymore :)

It's good to take a break from life once a while to look and relook the life that we are living before we lead astray. (not as in going to bad, but in terms of regretting things that might have(not)/could have(not)/should have(not) happened if we just look ahead before jumping in.

I also ponder ar....

You think too much, it will give you wrinkles and a headache.
Though, they are the very things I ponder about too!

as people grow older, we crave what is deemed impossible more. True love, is something not everyone can experience, and certainly only a rare few has the luxury to ever encounter. Money, career will one day be seconds to love and family, when we have achieved what we want in life. Keep a light heart, things, in time, will come your way.

i beg to differ... having a 5 year plan or short term plan is good and provided those plans are put into actions.

we cant live by the min for the min.. it makes us dull and restless..

being ambitious (again putting effort to achieve) is the thin fine line that differentiates one who makes it big and one who falls a little short of making it big..
