20 Years.

Where will we be in 20 years?

I will be 59 years old and most likley still working at this desk job. I will be looking forward to retirement, most likely and thinking of what I can do with 8 extra hours a day. My children will be grown (28 and 26) and hopefully in a job they enjoy. I hope my wife and I have raised them well and taught them all the thingsI wish I had been told growing up.

20 years. The number of things that I can’t comprehend will happen as well. Technology will change and I’m hoping that I can keep up with it. People living on Mars? It’s been talked about. Virtualy Reality, who knows? I can’t even imagine the future and I really don’t want to if I’m being honest.

1996. That was 20 years AGO. No such thing as an iPhone, iPod, iPad. The internet was barely getting it’s start. I wasn’t even able to legally drink…I was only 19 years old! I didn’t think 20 minutes ahead in the future. yet alone 20 years.

Now I think ahead constantly. I know death is closer than it’s even been. I wonder what it will be like as an old man. How will I be thought of as a dad? Husband? Friend? Some of my friends could possibly be dead. I could possibly be dead truthfully.

Time keeps moving along and there’s nothing we can do to stop it. We just need to embrace life and try to limit the number of regrets that will live in our heads. 20 years. Where will you be?
