Fast forward

The daily prompt asks if you could fast forward to a specific date in the future, when would it be?

Part of me doesn’t want to fast forward…why not just let life continue on the twisting, turning path that it continually goes down.

Why give up the journey that I’m currently on, the path that life is leading me down???

Why not enjoy the ups and down, the twists and turns, the going forward and the reversing, the diversions, the road blocks and the speed bumps along the way.  Be them good or bad…isn’t that the purpose of life after all.

I think that if I was to fast forward to a given date what would I be expecting???

What if what I’m expecting isn’t the reality of what is really there for me to see???

Would I be disappointed because of my decision to jump forward???

Most likely…so for now I’ll just keep going along on my own yellow brick road…or dirt road as it has been in a number of times in my life.

      I don’t know if I am necessarily where I want to be in life…especially given that I’m in the process of moving 3,600km (2,236 miles) from where I’ve just lived for the past 4 years to a new town and a new job. But I’m up for the adventure that all this brings, in that I have never been to the new town, I know nobody that lives there and I have very little details about the place where I’ll be living other than it is about 30km (19 miles) from the town.
