If you believe the future to be positive, empowering and better; or you believe it to be hopeless, despairing and filled with fear - you will be right either way.
The ultimate choice as to which of these radically different futures you choose to embed into your consciousness, is yours to make.
That choice can't be taken away from you, although most certainly others will try; you had it yesterday, you have it now, it's your personal superpower that you can use whenever and as often as you like.
We all live our lives according to a picture of the future (conscious or unconscious) that is either existing in full sunlight, or covered by a dark shadow. This image is the theme of the operating system that governs our lives; the decisions we make, the experiences that we have.
Having an awareness of your power and exploring what your current vision is is step 1.
If you find that current image to be problematic, step 2 would be creating something new to replace it with and finding your own personal place in that fresh image.
As the famous essayist, Anaïs Nin, once said: “We don't see things as they are, we see them as we are.”
If you don't like what you see in the world, it's time to actively choose something different.
