I’ve often thought about my future and what it would look like. I remember 10 years ago thinking by now I’d be married, have two kids, graduated from college with a successful job… but don’t we all imagine that for ourselves? We want what is best for us and out future. However, I am none of those things and that’s okay. I don’t think I’ve failed, I just think life took a different direction than what I had planned.
If I think now what I want for myself in ten years, it’s almost the same thing I wanted when I was 17. I still want a family, but it’s okay if I’m not married. I do want to graduate from college (almost done) and hopefully have a successful career (nursing most likely). Having these goals and expectations of myself is something that can push me to better myself.
I’ve already started the process on most of the goals I want to achieve in ten years. I applied to nursing school and I am just waiting to see what happens with that. However, if I don’t get in, I will just get my LVN first and then transfer to get my RN. I also have taken steps towards starting a family (more on that to come soon). So I feel like it’s all falling into place.
One thing I didn’t see in any of my “X amount of years from now…” thoughts was that both my parents would not be in those futures, but I know they’d be proud of me and where I am at the moment.
So… where do you see yourself ten years from now?
