The Future is in Today’s Past (StoryADay post)

As I looked into the future, all I could see was yesterday’s unresolved problems. I saw what happened when we took our eyes off the prize and began to chase after insignificant trinkets while neglecting the true pearls and diamonds that were already ours.

At the same time, however, I noticed that when people spoke about the future, they spoke of a fantasy, as the future was never going to happen. No one told me that what we did in the past wasn’t going to come back and kick us in our behinds.

Because that’s exactly what had happened today.
