Choices for tomorrow

A closure. Is that what the human mind seeks in every situations? Or are we so fearful of uncertainties?

I asked a friend, "So, where do you see yourself 10 years down the line?" And he had it all clear in his head. As if he had lived those 10 years already, witnessed every moment, maybe even written out the future himself, putting believers in destiny like me to shame.

"But then, what about adventure? The feeling of not knowing what's around the bend. When you know already what lies ahead, isn't that boring? Wouldn't you prefer to be flexible and let time do the talking?" I opined.

"When you grow as old as I, and realize that destiny is hogwash and life is what you make it, I'd like to hear about your take on adventures."

Uncertainties arouse fear, and also a sense of curiosity. But when you have certainties that make life worth it, why not ditch the unknown. Maybe reserve it for another lifetime.
