So many people get caught up in the future. What’s next? Where next? My answer always is, “who cares?” There is so much more to life than waiting for what could happen. You’re living now, and distracting yourself from what’s around you is a waste of your time and that’s the ugly truth.
I love focusing on who I am in this moment. What I’m surrounded by. Sometimes my mind starts focusing on all the things that could be, and I forget what is. My plan is to live each day to the fullest. Thinking of ways that I can become the best that I can be and if I have a goal to become something more, I think about the steps I need to take to get there. I don’t think about how far away I am from it.
Recently at work, my boss asked me what my five year plan was. Honestly? I HATE that question! How could I possible know where I’ll be in five years? Five years ago, I would have never dreamed of living the life I live now, but here I am. Don’t limit yourself to a plan. Or even planning for that matter. Trust in each day and growth through what comes at you. Start leading a life to anywhere and I promise you’ll end up somewhere better than your dreams.
