Seeing the Future

If a crystal ball would tell you the truth about any one thing you wished to know concerning yourself/life, the future, or anything else-what would you want to know? Would you even want to know anything?

If a crystal ball would tell me the truth about one thing i would want to know what the future holds for each one of my family members, such as where their career choices take them and who they would end up marrying. I would especially like to know about my sisters, because they have helped me so much that I would like to help them to help them aswell.

If a crystal ball would tell me the future about something I would only want to know something that has been giving me a lot of doubt for years. Or maybe when i would die. that way i would have more motivation about reaching goals in my life. But if i had the option to know the future but not be able to change it i would definetly not want to know. That would just tell me that i have no control of my own life. And if i wanted to change the future I would just know that i am probably just walking right into the fate that i knew would come.

If a crystal ball had the ability to tell me any aspect of my future, I would not use it. I believe in fate, and having a ball tell me how it is going to happen is worthless. Life is full of suprises, and that is half of the fun. I can't change the future because anything that will happen, would happen no matter what...especially if it was shown in a crystal ball. The future is all laid out, and I don't want to know what lies ahead.

To know the course of the future is a very powerful thing. If I were given the chance to see events of the future through a crystal ball I am not so sure I would. I think we always wonder where we will be later on in life however, I think knowing the answer to that question would take all the fun and excitement out of your life. I also think that if you knew what was going to happen your actions would be different and your future would change. I cant wait to see what my future has instore for me but I will find out when I get there.

If a crystal ball could show me anything from my future,I don't know if I would want to see it. Being surprised at what happens is too much fun to be ruined with already knowing what will happen. Sure, it would be interesting to see where I go to college, who I would marry, blah blah blah, but knowing all that would ruin it for me when it actually happened. I believe that I can change the future in my own way, but I don't need a crystal ball to tell me what to expect. I think that having a crystal ball tell me my future would take all the fun out life, and I would just be anticipating what the next day would hold.

If a crystal ball would tell me anythting about the future, I would want to see what lay ahead of me for acedemics. If the result wasn't the way I wanted it to be, I would try and change it. Although I believe in fate like Brett, I also believe in doing everything you can to help your future.

If a crystal ball would tell me the truth about any one thing I wished, I wouldn't want to know anything. I would want my future to unfold itself and expearience life for what it is. I wouldn't want to know anything about my life or myself because I don't want to be trying to fix things that I know I'm going to mess up in the future. Life's too short to not live everyday as though it was my last. If I knew my future or what's in it, I wouldn't live everyday as though it was going to be my last; i would live everyday thinking about that day something's going to happen.

Some people want to know what the future holds but at the same time, I'm sure that they really don't want to know. It's like opening a birthday present and already knowing what it is because you dicided to look. Knowing everything is no fun. The limit of fun ends when you know what the fun's going to be.

If a crystal ball could tell me any aspect of my life I would want to know the future. I would not want to know how my future would happen, but I would want to know how it ended up. Such as, I would want to know my career in the future but not how I got their. Life is more fun to go with the flow and take things as they happen, rather than know what is going to happen.

If i had the chance to view my whole future in one simple glance at a crystal ball of coursed id like to know, I'd want to know where i am then how im doing, if im married, if i got a good job and most of all if im happy, but just because i'd want to i dont think i would no matter how curious i got. Seeing my future would not only take out all the excitment of my future but in a way it could also change fate i guess you could say knowing how i end up would i try to make all my decisions based on what i think i need to do to get there? I wouldnt experience life the way i was suppose to and i dont know theres just something nice about not know whats to come.

If I had a crystal ball that could tell me the future I would probably put it in a closet and never use it. I believe the future is determined by the decisions you make in day to day life. These decisions can either change the future for better or worse. Because of this the crystal ball would have to change every time I made a choice. So for my best interest I would not use or even go near a crystal ball.

If a crystal ball would tell me anything i wanted to know i would use it. Personally I like not knowing what tomorow will bring.

If I had a crystal ball to tell me my future I would do what everyone else says and not use it. But if I had to I would see what my career was. If it was a bad career I would want to inprove my study habbits and try to get my grades up. But, if I look into the future and I am living a poor lifestyle than I will be worrying all of my life.

If given the chance to see my future I would definitely pass. I believe everything happens for a reason and toggling my future around would be the last thing on my mind. Two weeks ago my grandmas was visiting and decided to have her cards read. After watching the whole demonstration between her and the fortune teller woman I was curious to see what the cards had in store for me. After she preformed a short reading on me, I was disappointed with what may come of my future. Lately I find myself making decisions to avoid anything that I wouldn’t want happening from actually occurring. I feel cheated at the same time because I know that If I hadn’t had my palm read I wouldn’t be making some of the decisions I had. In conclusion If I were given a crystal ball to see my future or ask a question regarding what may happen, I would immediately smash it with a baseball bat and pass.

If I were to come upon a crystal ball in my life time I would use it. I would use it to see what my family was like before it broke apart, to see what it was like to say mom and dad in the same room instead of "Mom and Mike" or "Dad and Linnae". Anyways that's what I would use a crystal ball for.

If a crystal ball would tell me the truth about anything, I would absolutly take it. I would want to know if my family is going to be ok in the future. I want to know what are goingto be the main events in the future for my family; what careers they are going to end up having, if they are happy with them. Also I would want to know who they are going to marry and how that is going to work out. I wouldn't want to know everything that the future with holds in the future for my family, all i would want to know are the main events. Just incase there is a needed push or tug.

If a crystal ball would tell me anything i wanted to know about the future i would probably try my best to resist the urge of asking about my future because i think i would just go insane only thinking about that one thing that i asked about. I probably would ask something like where did humans come from, or why are humans here.

If I was offered the chance to see into the future I would ask to know something important, like; what are the answers to every question I will ever be asked? Then I would make a list as it recited them. So if I was offered this opportunity I would reject it and ask for nothing because knowing such thing would take the fun out of life. It wouldn’t make life worth living any more because there is no motivation. It would insure that I succeed at whatever life’s challenges throw at me, and that means I would learn absolutely nothing. It would be like playing a video game, but using a strategy guide instead of doing it the hard way. So no, I would not want to take the fun and spontaneity out of life.

If I had the chance to use a crystal ball…I honestly do not think I would use it. The reason why is because I love surprises and if I knew what was coming then there wouldn’t be a reason to live for. I think that curiosity is fifty percent of what we strive to live for. If we knew everything then there would be no reason for sports and betting. I do not think there is anything that I would want to know before I should know.

If a crystal ball would tell me the truth about any one thing about my future, i would not want to know anything. Everything in life depends on your decisions and actions; the results of your actions are not always in your favor. But that is what life is about. Knowing my future would take away the fun in life. If i had the option to see my future, i would reject it.

If a crystal ball would tell me the future of anything period, i would not allow myself to see it. (Eventhough i know they do not exist.) Why would you want to know anything or everything you would encounter and possibly do in the future? wouldn't there be a psychological truama in knowing what was going to happen? It would drive me crazy, and to no end. The effects psychologically would effect me. It's like walking around know when you are going to die. It's hard to explain, but mentally there is a battle, you know it, but you want to reject the fact you know it. I would reject seeing what life has in store for me, i can find out on my own.

If a crystal ball would tell me the future, I honestly wouldn't want to know. What if, for example, my life is ending very shortly? If I would find that out, I would proably start obsessing about when and where it was supposed to happen. I wouldn't want to know the bad things in my future because then I would be constantly thinking about them, and not of the good things. I would rathar not know about my future because then life would be too boring. There would be no suprises or excitement. I wouldn't be able to dream or hope for the future because I would already know what's going to happen. Life would be just too boring.
