Sitting alone over the weekend, in total silence, and relaxed, I started thinking about the future. Yeah, when the corona virus is behind us, but more than just that.  You know.  The future.  As in what’s down the road in general. Not 'new normal'. More, what's out there next, beyond how society changes or doesn't change.

And I started to reflect and think of how blessed my life has been.  I love my profession.  I love my family. I am grateful for the friends in my life. I’ve done a lot of traveling in many, many countries.  I’ve met so many great people I consider dear to me, from coast to coast in two countries.

I thought of things I haven’t done too.

I’ve never been admitted to a hospital.  I’ve never had anything wrong with me.  Only time other than visits to hospitals I’ve been in was emergency, twice, for stitches to the face.  Thank you, hockey. I’ve never been to prison. I know, I know, there’s still time. Even with the quarantine, and increased television viewing, I haven’t watched a single episode of Tiger King, and I probably never will. I never fathered a child, and maybe I’ll regret that when I get older. Much older.

Anyway ‘the future’ came into my head.

I don’t have a bucket list of things I want to accomplish or experience or do.  And I am totally content with that. I am alright with not living to accomplish anything.  Just enjoying the ride, and doing it one day at a time. Here’s to another good day today.
