Wishful Thinking: Would You Want A Crystal Ball? (VIDEO)

Good Enough Mother® - Rene Syler

And if so, what would you want to know?

Hey all, it’s one of my favorite segments here on Good Enough Mother, Wishful Thinking! One of the things I think we forget to do when we become super-serious, bill-paying adults is to dream and that can’t happen! Dreaming keeps us young and hopeful; the latter seems to be in short supply.

 So sit back and take two minutes to watch this edition of Wishful Thinking then leave your comments!

    I think curiosity would get the best of me and I would look. I would want to know about my children and would they be okay. Although I enjoy challenges, I would also like to know about the things I am working on and how they will turn out.

    No. What good does it do, I guess? If 20 years ago you’d shown me the events of this year would I have still dated my wife? Gotten married? Would I avoid the heartache? What happens to the amazing times or the children, whole nine yards. I would never have known about the amazing opportunity for the new job I have now. I would never have met amazing colleagues (including you, Rene) or taken the path I’m on. I would have seen the end result but not the events that led to it.
    As for the dreams, I don’t want to know. At 21 I wanted to be a musician. There’s a piece of that 21-year-old in me that plays guitar every day, writes music for my brother and his band, hoping I might still do it. The realist in me knows that I can’t take care of 4 kids, make a living and be on the road, fun as it may be. But would I still write songs? Would I still play if I knew the answer? Probably not, and that would just kill me. No, the crystal ball would tell you the future, but not the journey. Now, in my world I live today, I just don’t think I could handle that knowledge well.

Combing the aisles at Target in search of the best deal on Cheerios, it hit Rene Syler like the stench of a dirty diaper on a hot summer’s day. Not only is perfection overrated its utterly impossible! Suddenly empowered, she figuratively donned her cape, scooped up another taco kit for dinner and Good Enough Mother was born.
