10 Years Time

I am 20 years old in 1 month, and to think about what I am doing in 10 years honestly frightens me. I feel like there is this expectation that you should find your significant other to spend the rest of eternity with, to find a career you’re passionate about and go study for it, and to start planning your life accordingly – finding a house, get married and start planning for children. Luckily, I have a healthy family and a very healthy long-term relationship with my boyfriend already. I know I want children in my late twenties, and I want to settle down in a house by then. However, I have absolutely no idea what I actually want to do with my life… Meaning I have no idea what I am passionate about studying and spending the rest of my working life doing.

I am currently not studying because I am not paying for international study fee’s, so I am just waiting to become a permanent resident in Canada so I can study under the normal rates. This has given me some thinking time. Do I want to be an interior designer? An events coordinator? Or do I want to go down the science side of things and become a Veterinary Technician? Or a radiologist? The list in never ending, and I am indecisive as it is. 

I have searched the internet hoping for some inspiration, and nothing. Absolutely nothing appeals to me. I would like to think I have my life mapped out. But I don’t. And that is okay. As long as I am healthy, my family is healthy, we have a roof over our heads, and I get to go travelling, I will be so happy and not regret a day. Because that is what makes me happy. Money doesn’t make me happy. Sure it would be lovely to have a nice car, and a nice house in a big city or a small suburb, and not have to struggle, and yes I do strive for this lifestyle, although it’s not my number one priority. Number one is seeing the world, falling in love all over again each day, and being happy with all of my choices. This is where I see myself in 10 years.

So I will leave the question with you – Where do you see yourself in 10 years time? Leave your comments in the box below. xxx
