Stop acting as if life is a rehearsal. Live this day as if it were your last. The past is over and gone. The future is not guaranteed. - Wayne Dyer
Not only have we been discussing our own future a lot, many of those who surround us have as well. Nothing is a guarantee and you never know what the next day may hold. You may know that an event will happen to change your future and you must prepare for that day and not let it take you by surprise. On the same note, I need to learn to be more flexible with each coming day that changes will happen, decisions will be made and your future can always change.
This is one of my favorite quotes:
You never know where life may take you and while we all try to prepare as best we can for our future, sometimes things happen and you must make a different path. This applies to all aspects of our own personal lives, work, children, projects, livestock, depending on the rain, etc. The future is never certain.
Always keep your eyes open and heads up, then you'll be prepared and open to whatever may come, and it might be better than the original dream you had!
