Question: Where would you like to be in 10 years?
This is a hard question for me to answer. I hardly know where I’ll be in a year, let alone 10! Actually, I just try to take each day as it comes and focus on being as present as possible; after years of dissociation from childhood trauma I appreciate ‘the moment’ more so than the future. Mindfulness has really taught me to slow down and be aware of how I am feeling NOW. So right NOW is important to me but I do consider the future sometimes. However, when I do it tends to make me anxious because I haven’t quite figured out the HOW when it comes to realizing my goals and dreams.
In short, providing I haven’t dropped dead, I would like to have found my significant other and have some type of paid work I enjoy, as well as a furry companion in 10 years. Presently, I am unemployed and single so I have my work cut out for me! LOL However, 10 years is a long time and lots can happen. Certainly the last 10 years of my life have seen many changes (some good, some not so good). Overall I have faith my life will turn out in the way that is best for my personal growth. I also have faith that good things will happen for me so I am not going to focus heavily on the HOW, rather I will simply work on the WHAT. What do I want is probably the best thing for me to focus on because I have always found setting a clear and strong intention to be my best ally in achieving my goals/dreams.
