I often find myself wishing I was in possession of a crystal ball.
I have questions that I need answered, such as
"Where will I live in a year? Two years? Will I be happy I moved if I do it?"
"Five years from now, will I want kids?"
"Ten or twenty years from now, will I be glad I went to law school?"
I can't imagine that most people don't have these type of questions. It's hard not to second guess making big life choices such as a career change or a move to another city, right?
And of course who wouldn't want to know "hey, AM I ever going to meet someone? Anytime soon?"
But honestly the time I most wish I had a crystal ball is when I'm standing in front of my closet in the morning deciding what to wear.
I wish every time I made a purchase I could ask "five years from now, will I wish I hadn't purchased this? Or will I kick myself for not having purchased two more in different colors?"
Today I'm wearing a stupid gray cotton 3/4 sleeve dress I bought online on a whim from J.Crew five years ago. I wear this dress year round, at least twice a month. I've worn it with leggings and boots to visit a client in prison, I've worn it with tights and a blazer to court, I've worn it to dinner with girlfriends. I wish I had purchased five of them.
Deep thoughts, folks.
