Today’s Word: foresight

☆  foresight  展望


Someone’s foresight is their ability to see what is likely to happen in the future and to take appropriate action. So, I have some sad news, but it does relate to today’s word. Last year, my mother had an operation to fix her broken arm. She had the foresight to write out a plan about what she would want to happen to her if something went wrong.

She had the foresight to make a plan that said she didn’t want to have any artificial machines keeping her alive if she got sick. Unfortunately, yesterday she had a heart attack. Luckily, she was found and got to a hospital in time. However, her heart is not in a good condition, so the doctors have helped her heart to stay working… but looking at the plan she wrote out six months ago, I’m not sure this is really what she wanted.

So, why am I telling you this?! Well, it relates to foresight, but I also want to let you know that I might not get the daily emails out to you each day over the next few days and weeks. I will try to do them daily, as I like writing to you and it makes me feel grounded, but if I miss a day during these next few weeks, please forgive me.
