“My future is (unlimited).”
 
I’m looking for a word to complete the above sentence to replace (unlimited) but I do not want to use a synonym that has a prefix or suffix that means ‘not’ like un- or -less.  The only thing I could think of is “wide open” but that’s a two word phrase and I’d like to have a single word. Any suggestions?

Vast fits somewhat, but as big as that might be it is not really unlimited.

Plenary fits a little better but it is pretty uncommon.

I like amaranthine. How many times do you get to use that?

Also:
plenary, everlasting, all-inclusive, all-encompassing, comprehensive, forever, astronomical, vast, immense, enormous, extensive, bountiful, prodigious, titanic, colossal, absolute

If you avoid using epic, I will avoid throwing stones at you.

At this point, I’m so sensitized that I would prefer that people avoid using that word even where it’s appropriate, such as in describing Beowolf.

‘Panoramic’ has nothing about boundaries, right? And is very much about bigness.

Now you might think about camera, and wonder about the vertical dimension,  but really, ‘panoramic’ cares about no such things.

I would re-think the problem. “My future is unlimited” is false in any case (because everyone’s future is limited), so why not say something else?

My future is filled with promise, or my future seems unlimited.

In what context are you writing this? Fiction? Personal essay?
