Most of us have this habit of worrying about the things that might happen tomorrow, next week, months and even years. I don’t say that it’s not bad to make plans for the future because we’re not the only ones who are going to benefit from it but also our loved ones. However, overthinking what kind of life is waiting for us can only ruin our present self.
When I turned 25, I started to think about my future. I began to formulate so many questions inside my head although I’m aware I don’t have all the answers for all of them, yet. I became uncertain about how am I supposed to support myself if the project I’m working on won’t work, will I be able to make my goals turn into reality, etc. I envy those people who just go with the flow of life and don’t bother whether they still have food to eat, a house to live and a job to go to the next day. Now that I’m 26, I’m slowly keeping myself at ease and try as much as I can to live in the present. I wake up in the morning without fussing about what am I suppose to do today and just do what I feel and need to do.
I used to write down my to-do list for a day so I can be organize but I can’t keep up on it! So, I decided to make a monthly task instead which is easier than the first one. I only check it twice or thrice a month to see if I missed anything or add more tasks to it. This routine helps me to become more productive than last year. The year 2020 has been tough for me and also for my family which I think, adds more difficulty to have peace of mind.
Only God knows whats’s going to happen in the future. He’s aware of what’s better for us and we all should trust Him. I’m not a religious person and I don’t go to church every Sunday just like a Catholic should do but I can tell you that I have my faith.
I’m turning 27 this year and I want to make the most of my 26. Thinking about the future gives me anxiety so I don’t give more time and effort to layout my plans for it. I just want to enjoy every second, minute and hour of my every day. Life is so short to spend it trying to figure out all I want to have a year or 5 or 10 years from now. Let’s just all celebrate the mornings we wake up and the nights we rest and live a happy life.
