Where do you see yourself in five years?Thursday, June 19, 2014
A while ago I tagged Gingerella with a Liebster blog tag and one of my questions to her was - what would you most like to ask me?
Her question was 'where do you think you will be in 5 years time?' I drew a blank and this really got me thinking. I've never been one to make long term plans, I'm a bit of a day dreamer, going about my days without much thought for next week, let alone, next year or in five years time. I can't tell you how long it took me to come up with that answer and yet it was all pretty standard stuff.
I have a friend that asks me 'so, what's the plan?' every time I see him. He's one of life's planners and finds my lack of an answer infuriating! The thing is I just don't have a plan.
I'm content with life. I love our home (despite the work that needs to be done), I love working for myself (I've probably mentioned that once or twice already), Andy and I are plodding along nicely, my family and friends are happy and healthy. I have little to complain about.
But is 'plodding along' enough? I wonder, should I be aspiring to something... more?
I believe in the saying that you regret the things you don't do rather than the things you do (I'm sure it's a little more eloquent than that but you get my meaning). So, is there anything that I really want to achieve in life? It's not the question that vexes me, but the lack of an answer.
Perhaps the answer can be found in looking back and asking myself 'do I have any regrets?'?
Do you know where you want to be in 5 years time? Do you have a grand plan?
