Daily Blog Challenge: Day 22

Where do you see yourself in 5 years? 10 years? 15 years?
This one is kinda tough for me. I am not sure how into it I will go. My life has never gone the way I thought it would. This is not a bad thing, it is actually quite the opposite. For example, I am going to flip this around.

15 yrs ago I was 12. I remember feeling so proud to be a "preteen" and thinking I was so grown. I was sure that I would be a massage therapist. I wanted to also be a singer to raise money for my Special Education class. I had thought that I would be living back in Ohio. 
This was before I began having my chronic pains through out my body.

10 years ago I was 17. I had thought that I would have gone far away to college. I wanted to be a sign interpreter for a Christian school. I loved kids but had no direct interest in having any. I also didn't want any man to tell me what to do or to hold me down. 
This was before I met my now hubby and just two year prior to becoming pregnant. 

5 years ago I was separated for my hubby and was deeply considering a divorce. I had thought that I would be raising Abbie on my own. 
This was just six months before we got help and began to heal our relationship. 

I would have never guessed that I am where I am today. I learned to have small goals and large ones that God gives me but obviously I have to be flexible in my plans. In 5, 10, and 15 years I see myself still growing in my walk with the Lord. I see myself maybe having one more child, if God blesses me so. I pray to be actively involved in a ministry that reaches out to women and young ladies that experience things that I have experienced. 

Where do you see yourself? Are you on the same track as you had thought 5,10, or 15 years ago?

  1. That is a tough question. I never thought I'd go through the things I have, that's for sure. Where do I see myself? Not sure about the time frame but I see myself actively involved in helping broken people and marriages, with my husband by my side. So he'd better not die!


Please feel free to respond or ask me a question... I would love your comments.
