What does the future hold for us? Will we still be together in a year, or 5 years, or 25 years?
  At times, I wonder if this relationship will be "the one" that lasts for a lifetime. I know that many relationships end in divorce or some other ending, and the odds of our relationship lasting probably worry me at times.
  If I look back over the past few years, how well did I predict things then? And even if my crystal ball was accurate in some ways, would my present really be any different if I hadn’t tried to imagine the future back then?
  As much as I wish at times I had power over the future, all I really have any power over is today. I can choose the direction I want to go, but what lies over the next hill is a mystery until I get there. And there’s always another hill past the next one!

Just for Today
  Today, I’ll use more of my energy to focus on today, and when my mind gets restless, I’ll play back the day in my imagination, looking for little joys and moments that I may have missed exploring in the here and now. I’ll remind myself that "today is the tomorrow I thought about yesterday". This day will never come again, so I’ll get every precious moment I can from it, and share the joys I get from it with my SO.

Prediction is extremely difficult. Especially about the future. - Niels Bohr
