Today my roommates and I were sitting in one of our rooms, goofing off as usual, when one of us decided to get serious and ask where each of us wanted to be in 10 years. That is such a loaded question, but then we all got to thinking. Where do we want to be?
Will we be married or single?
Will we have children?
Where will we be living?
I was thinking to myself during this whole conversation and I came to the conclusion that I really don’t know where I want to be.
There are small things that I would love to happen, like being married and starting to have children, but I do not know where I want to live, or what I will be doing. I think that life is about enjoying the now, and taking things slow. On the other side of things, I believe that if you feel confident enough in something, then you need to go for it. Take that step. Don’t step out of your comfort zone, leap out of.
Life is too short to plan out all the small things. If that is the case, then there would be no room for surprises. If you want to start a new hobby, start it. If you want to become a singer, do it.
Like the quote above, “Once in a while, blow your own damn mind”
It may surprise you what you are good out. Maybe you can be the next Christina Aguilera. Or the next Mia Hamm. Maybe you are an awesome photographer, or great dancer. You never know unless you try, and life is too short not to.
So, where will I be ten years from now? Hopefully married, hopefully starting to have kids, hopefully working at my dream job.
But I will continue to do things that make me happy.
