F inspiration (...just kidding)

Something that inspires me that starts with the letter F.... the future. You could see the time ahead of you as grim and arduous, or see it as full of possibility and mystery and supremely engaging. Whether or not the future works out to be what you think as being in your favor, if it's not that good of a situation, it can teach you something. It can give you an experience with which you can teach someone else - there is something to be gained in all the experiences that will come. So either something good is coming, or a new tool in my mental tool case, or a new value that I will have for having lived through a bad thing. 
It makes it difficult to have this perspective when you're posed with the question, "So if XY happens you will be better off??" There are a lot of terrible XYs that could happen, but by me not wanting them will not ward them off. I have no choice in some of the things that happen to me, so with what I am given, my hopes and choices completely out of the picture, I will have this attitude. The future inspires me.
