Five years from now, I will be 28 years old (WOW:smileysurprised:)!

"I see myself married with one or two kids and living in my first home. I have received my first degree and I have a decent job. As far as me personally, I have come out of my shell and developed into a well rounded young lady. I live life as if there is no tomorrow and I do my best for my family. Also, I am in great health and I serve as a mentor to the younger generation."

When we look at how we would like to be or what we would like to have in life, it pushes us to work harder each and everyday. Above is just a small summary of what I would like to have in life. However, the possibilities are endless:smileyhappy:

That's just made me feel really old, lol.

To be honest, I've learned not to plan my life too much. That's not to say I don't have goals but I've learned that life is unpredictable and things don't always wind up exactly as you expected. When I was 23 I thought that by the time I was 27/28 I'd be ready to have kids. I'm now 28 and have no immediate plans to have kids. I also thought I would be living back in the US but I'm not, my husband and I are still in the UK. So you just never know where you'll be in 5 years and sometimes, planning it out too much can lead to disappointment and confusion. So I try to take things as they come.

I'm with uklgirl, being 28 now I am thinking that kids are still another 5 years off :P

I have no idea where I'll be. Maybe I'll be living on my own in Barcelona or dead from stress? Maybe I will have changed careers and be a professional singer?

Great to see you, ukgirl82!!

Lol, I didn't mean to make you feel old. I'm pretty sure someone else is saying five years from now I will be 22:smileywink:

ITA, that life is all about spin-arounds and making adjustments. When I posted this thread, I was in a great mood relationship wise. Now, I don't see the marriage happening anytime soon. All we can do is live life one day at a time and hope for the best:smileyhappy:
