My god what a question to have to make a decision on.. would I read it or wouldn’t I? Decisions, decisions, decisions… come on WordPress give me a break? If I read it and find in the future things are going to be horrendous.. then I will regret for the rest of my days, knowing what is going to happen..
But on the other hand, I suppose if I didn’t read it and my lottery numbers came up.. I suppose I would be thinking FFS if only I knew there was a windfall coming my way.. I would have done this and that and worried about paying the costs off knowing full well I had this nice little windfall coming.
I think that question posed by WordPress and the 365 days of writing prompts is a what they call a double-edged sword.. whatever side you fall on you are going to have regrets as to which choice you made in this question…
But for me.. I will decline.. what I have done in the past I can’t change.. and if I did change one little thing then my life would not be what it is today.. The good and the bad times makes us who we are.. and no I wouldn’t change a thing.. and if I am being perfectly honest.. I really don’t want to know what the future does hold for me.. because if it doesn’t include the people I love and want to be around… then I am going to be beside myself knowing that things are not going to be as how I wish them to be.
So the answer has to be.. no I wouldn’t read my, ‘This is my life, past, present and future‘ book.
And as Lisa Stansfield sang…
If I could change the way I live my life today
I wouldn’t change a single thing
‘Cos if I change my world into another place
I wouldn’t see your smiling face
