Okay, obviously I don’t really suffer premonitions in the supernatural kind of way. At times, though, I do see my future. I imagine it, as some would say. But it’s not just idle day dreaming. I have the feeling I can actually see it, as if looking at a picture.
I’ve always had these glimpses. Not that I would call them visions.
I can see my home. The one I will be building. It takes more and more shape these days. I see little things like the sink in my bathroom, my desk, a sofa in the living room, possibly my kitchen.
The clearer the vision, the more I realize I know where I am headed.
If I can’t see myself somewhere, someplace, with someone, then I know it will never happen. But when I can see these things, the places, the people, things surrounding me, I know I am headed that way and they are things my future holds for me.
Travelling the world was a daunting thought in the beginning. But I could see myself doing it, so it was within the realm of possibility. If I can’t imagine myself doing something, then it is not within the realm of possibility. It can never become reality, not mine anyway. It’s as simple as that and quite helpful when it comes to making decisions. Especially big ones.
For instance, I can see my future house, my home. But I cannot see where it will be. I don’t know the place I will be building it. Because I haven’t found that place yet.
The same with a job I might be doing. If I can’t see myself doing it, it’s not worth my while taking it. I will not even try some things, because I can’t see myself doing them. Maybe I know myself well enough to know that it would be a waste of time anyway.
I don’t know, if this is a skill, if it is just intuition or maybe an overactive imagination. It doesn’t really matter, because it actually works for me, which is the important thing here.
I can see myself as a writer in my own home. And maybe at this stage it is more a dream than anything else. But because I can see it, I know it can become reality. And I will do everything in my power to make it happen.
So, whatever this might be, I welcome it, because it helps me live my life in the best possible way. It gets me where I want to be and allows me to do what I want to do.
I guess, in the end, we all have to figure out what works for us and this is what works for me. I just go and take a look at the future and see what is there.
