That's it. I'm nostalgic for the future!
It really does give me a better attitude toward life today. No matter how
bad things get, I think about how I will look back on these tribulations
from the far future and muse about how much I learned. No matter how mad
someone gets me on the list, I think about how we will joke and laugh about
our childish squabblings in the far future. Problems I had in the past
don't seem so important now, and today's problems will probably fade and be
forgotten as well.
I also stick to a healthy diet and keep pushing my learning and my career.
In the far future I will look back and be glad that I didn't waste my time
like so many people around me did. Instead of thinking about what I want
now, I try to think about what the results will be for my far future plans.
