I am always looking ahead
thinking, what next?
Today’s plan? Next week’s activities?
Trying to schedule everything in.
But what I don’t do is
to look at the year ahead,
think about the next three years,
or indeed the next ten years.
I need to lift my thinking
to be more strategic and
not just task focused.
For life isn’t just about weeding.
The future is there to be imagined
And then created.
Seeds need to be planted
for the flowers I want to grow.
