Prompt: Where do you see yourself in 5 years? 10 years? 15 years?
5 years from now: I will be 21 years old.
I see myself in college, getting a degree in either some form of Education, Curriculum and Instruction, English & Literature, Creative Writing, and perhaps a minor in Philosophy, Theology, or the Classics. Clearly there are a lot of stereotypes for people who don't spend their 21st year very wisely, and I do not plan to be one of them. Instead, I'd like to focus on establishing a career in an interest that is close to my heart which pleases the Lord.
10 years from now: I will be 26 years old.
I will either be starting a career, or getting a Ph.D. (if I'm still interested) or both. At that point in time, I hope to have my own apartment or share one with a good friend or my sister. It would be great if my education was all finished by then, but of course, it's not easy pursuing a degree in a short amount of time.
15 years from now: I will be 31 years old.
At this point, I hope to be settled in a career that is pleasing to the Lord. If the Lord allows it, I hope to be married and perhaps have a child or two, or maybe three (some perhaps adopted), and living out the plan that God has in store for my life. 31 years is still a young age, so I am quite convinced that I won't have everything figured out and placed into nice, tidy organized boxes, but above all else, I hope to have a wonderful relationship with God that displays His love to everyone around me.
Question for the Reader: Where do you see yourself in the future?
"And the Lord has declared today that you are a people for his treasured possession, as he has promised you, and that you are to keep all his commandments, and that he will set you in praise and in fame and in honor high above all nations that he has made, and that you shall be a people holy to the Lord your God, as he promised." --Deuteronomy 26:18-19
