A Phone Call to the Past
Sunday, December 09, 2012
Today's SparkCoach session included a visualization exercise in which I am to visualize my life 10 years ago; and then, project my life 10 years from today.
What does that look like? What do I want my future life to look like 10 years from now?
Then, as my future self, I am to make a phone call back 10 years to my present self. What would that conversation sound like?
I began thinking back to 10 years ago, and what a conversation would sound like if today I were able to call myself 10 years ago.
While I'm not so sure I'm ready for the call FROM my future self to my present self, I am going to put considerable thought into what I would say today if I were able to make a call to myself 10 years ago.
I am really glad that I can't actually do that, because any changes to the decisions I did make ( good and bad - and there were a lot of major ones), who really knows what the long-term ramifications would have been on any one of them. Undoubtedly I would not be sitting here in my present life, as it is today, writing this.
Despite all the blood, sweat and tears that have been consigned to what I call my "bucket of [you know what]" I am the happiest and most content I have ever been in my life.
But I do believe there are some things and people that I allowed to become factors in my decisions that were not in my best interest. And I'd like to learn from that and use it to my advantage, if I can.
