This question, “What excites you about the future?” is something I have had in the ideas section of my folder for my blog, for some time. It’s a question I look at time and time again, that I feel I can’t answer fully. I have nearly crossed this idea off my list, but here it is, now aired.
Can I answer it now?
I can in some way, but I still feel my feelings on this question, don’t feel right.
What excites you about the future?
For me, I was excited about the future the minute I started working where I am. Further excited when I got to live in Mansfield and finally leave Sutton-in-Ashfield behind.
I feel contented now I am living in Mansfield and it has made more of a positive effect on me, than I realised it would. I love my job still, but the regular hours and possibly more I was hoping to get there, has not happened. Words said in the past, has not happened. It feel I’m still just surviving, while on low hours and I do need something else in a morning. On the job hunting front, it has been quiet, or it has clashed with my current job.
I’m looking forward to the future, but I can’t say I am excited about it. I still want to be living in a council property and when I can start to bid again, as in a fixed term for 12 months before it just carries on after that, where I can put a months notice in when the time comes to wanting to move. I’m hoping I won’t have many years on the council waiting list and that my luck comes up.
I can say I am looking forward to the future, but when I observe how I feel about this question, I am not excited about it.
This may surprise some.
What excites you about the future? Or do you kind of feel the same, or similar?
