I will be out of grad school and working in a children's hospital as a social worker, most likely in palliative care. In ten years, I will be out of debt (minus the mortgage) and will be living somewhere I truly want to live for myself, not just some place that we picked based on availability of good school programs for autism. My husband will work part time around MY schedule, so that none of our kids will ever be in daycare.
That is as close to a long term plan as I have had at any time of my adult life. Yes, it is simple, but at the same time, it is not, because I am aware of all of the steps I have to take to get to where I can reach these two broader goals.
