A Future Imagined

Uncategorized May 12, 2020

“Real difficulties can be overcome; it is only the imaginary ones that are unconquerable”

Theodore N Vail

Just as a depressed person lives in the past

An anxious person lives in the future.

There is no other time but this very moment.

This means that the person who lives in the past lives in a memory

A memory is not the past

A memory is a thought that you have about the past….now

An anxious person does not live in the future

An anxious person lives in their imagination

An imagination of a future ‘gone wrong’

An anxious person spends so much time in their imagination of a future ‘gone wrong’ they forget to notice they are in a present moment in which they are perfectly ok.

The future they were once anxious about has become the present moment that they are perfectly ok in

Remember, the future is an unknown equation

You can never ‘know’ the future

You can only ‘imagine’ the future

Guard your imagination

It is a wonderful friend when used wisely to create an amazing life

It is a terrible burden when used against yourself to keep your life ‘safe’ and therefore small
