Wouldn’t foreknowledge be great? Wouldn’t it just be swell to know before you make a decision what the outcome of that decision would be? Wouldn’t it just be nice and comfortable to know you are always going to make the right choice or take the right step because you’ve gone ahead and you know what the right choices are and which are the right steps to take? Wouldn’t that be just grand?
Unfortunately, most decisions have to be made without that foreknowledge. Its not the little decisions that bother me. Its the big ones. Its those big, life-changing, heart-risking decisions that I wish I could foretell. That I wish I had a video to fast-forward through and see what my lines should be in order to bring about the ending I want.
I know, I know . . . to know such things takes all the joy and spontaneity out of life.
But wouldn’t it be nice . . . just once or twice . . . to know where you are going to end up before you get there rather than after you arrived?
