Close your eyes and imagine the future

saying about imagining your future

I was watching a movie on Netflix the other night. There was a scene in the movie where the lead character says to his friend, “Close your eyes. Imagine your future. What do you see?”

I think COVID-19 has caused many people to reassess and re-evaluate their lives. I have some friends who say they don’t want to go back to working the same long hours as they did before. Other friends have decided to make a life change and quit their jobs. For those of us closer to retirement, all of a sudden it’s much easier to imagine the day when we’re not working at all.

I thought I’d try it. I closed my eyes, and saw several different futures. Now the real question is, what am I going to do about it?

This week’s #HappyAct is to close your eyes and imagine your future. What do you see?

  1. It’s true. COVID has changed how we see things. I don’t know anyone who hasn’t griped about it and rejoiced about positive changes In their lives because of COVID. . When I close my eyes I see work as less important and The hope of us changing many types of environments to slow it down, to consume less, and to change what “ living the dream “ actually should mean. Make less, spend less, smile more. Sasquatch.
