I am unemployed but actively searching. Lack of job prospects but determined not to quit. Sending resumes out by any means necessary but “email or fax your resume” rhetoric discourages. Interview clothes no longer fit due to weight gain but I took up jogging.
My presence in the present is a continuous struggle towards the illusive light at the end of the tunnel but there is hope that this state of being, shall too pass, opening up another of life’s venues to travel and explore-with good juju everywhere!
The present is a state of limbo in between the past and future. The past led me to the present and the present will lead me to the future. If I have learned something from the past and applied it to the present, then the future will hold the positive outcome since I would have learned from the past.
The past protects, saves the memories, and establishes sorrows. The present holds the past hostage with reflections on should haves, could haves and if only’s. Regrets of the past form foundations as mistakes build upon sedimentary layers.
The future viewed through the present unveils the abundance of projections and uncertainties and guards the if’s and going to’s as well as aspirations and expectations.
Overall, the future holds hope.
