Reverb - Future Self

Reverb prompt:
Future Self - Imagine yourself five years from now. What advice would you give your current self for the year ahead? (Bonus: Write a note to yourself 10 years ago. What would you tell your younger self?   I'm going to answer this one very briefly simply because I work very hard at trying to live in the present moment. I've learned that you can't go back in time so why dwell. You can't control what is to come so why obsess. However, it is important to learn from your past and plan for your future so I will play along. Briefly.
To Future Self: Shift out of neutral and start moving now! There are great things waiting for you in the future so stop fearing and start living!!!!
To Past Self:  (said with a giant bear hug) I love you incredibly. You deserve good and it's coming your way. Trust that you are enough. You'll make it. You'll see. 

Totally off subject. I've been having problems taking photos for some time. The above shot was taken this past summer. Whether I use manual or auto, I think the shot is clear when I take it. Once it's on the computer, it looks out of focus. Is it my eyes? Is it my camera? Computer screen? It's not 100% of the time, but quite often.
What's the trouble with focus lately? Ha! That's funny. I just realized something after typing that out. 
I did some praying lately and asked for help.
Know what came to mind?
One word.
Hmmm.... Interesting....

Like minds think alike. No need to think too hard when you have this attitude, which by the way is a great attitude to have.

Your picture looks 3D to me. Looks like I could reach out and touch it. Did it smell as good as it looks like it did?

Sounds like the word for the year. That's how they sneak up on you. Loved your post. You know what came to mind? Several years ago I attended a 'sleepover' with a bunch of girls I knew from way back when. They handed out pieces of paper and said, write down where you see yourself in 5 years. I quickly wrote "riding a Harley along the Oceanfront". Made no sense to me but it was in pen and I put it in the box anyway. They went around opening each note and trying to guess who it was. 8 out of 10 notes said "stay at home mom". Then there was mine. Nobody could guess. And you know what? 5 years to the day I was riding a Harley along the Ocean front in California. Completely unexpected. Dreams do come true dearest. Even the ones you don't know are inside you.
