It’s funny how we think we can plan the future, like we actually have control over the next years of our lives. Even though we’ve learned time and time again that life will throw you curve balls and completely change your path in the blink of an eye. I recently wrote a post about where 18 year old me thought I’d be at 23 – I was way off.
But it’s great to have ambitions and goals, at least some kind of drive that will get you to go in the direction you want to go in. So here is where I want to be in five years:
I want to be promoted within my company.
But I want to be relocated, in five years I don’t want to be living in New Jersey anymore.
I want to have a dog.
I want to be living in my own apartment.
I want to be a better person.
Those are all things that are realistic and I can really work towards. Those are things I definitely want to happen. Here are some things I wouldn’t mind happening:
I wouldn’t mind being engaged, but I don’t think I would want to be married just yet.
I wouldn’t mind having a place where I can have my own garden (maybe a house?)
I wouldn’t mind living in an apartment with a best friend or boyfriend.
I wouldn’t mind having more than one dog and other pets 🙂
I wouldn’t mind if that relocation was to the south.
While all those things would be well and good, not everything goes according to plan. It’s nice to have a solid base to work off of. But if none of the above works out the way I hope, I will find another path that suits me. I always do.
