208 366 Crystal Ball

(208/366) Crystal Ball

July 26, 2012 – Sometimes it would be nice to have a crystal ball to look into, but then where’s the fun in that? Where’s the adventure of the unknown? I think it’s how we deal with the unknowns that really defines who we are.

It’s funny, but we always think hindsight is 20/20, yet I have to admit that I don’t think I’d do anything different in my life. Regrets aren’t worthwhile at any point in time, since you can’t undo what’s been done. And I have learned from everything I’ve done, every accomplishment, and every failure.

If I had a crystal ball, would my life be more boring? Probably. If we could see the pitfalls there wouldn’t ever be any risk, and risk keeps us energized. If we have nothing to lose, we don’t stop and think about just what it is we might lose. And if there was never anything but success, what value would we place on it.

No, I like my crystal ball just the way it is, clear and uninformed. It’s pretty, but it doesn’t tell me anything I don’t already know. The future is unknown, enjoy everything it throws at you – good and bad – and learn and grow from its lessons. Make mistakes, heck, go ahead and make them twice, because it’s the mistakes that make us really appreciate the successes.

Who needs a crystal ball! Life is short, embrace the insecurities it offers. Gads life would be dull and/or terrifying if we knew all that was coming our way!

Never regret!

It’s just wasted energy.
