So as I was driving (we won't even begin to talk about that one!) into work this morning (in the very wee hours of the day) there was a radio ad. The premise is that their company doesn't make you make difficult choices like : Who would you prefer to spend a day fishing with: Your past self or your future self.
I know it was just a commercial but - what would your answer be?
I thought about it being my past self and then realized I really wasn't a very happy, content or satisfied past self and if I was going to spend the day fishing with her She would probably be sitting there thinking about all of the other things she needed to be doing, or wanted to be doing and not be sitting there as good company. Whereas I am hoping that my future self would be much more content in her surroundings and enjoy the moments as they occurred. I can imagine sitting in a boat enjoying the quiet, the soft lapping of the water against the side of the boat, the gentle sway of my hair as a soft breeze saunters by. That would be a much more enjoyable person to spend a day with.
How about you?
