When people say where do you see yourself in 20 years ? Do you know the answer ? Have you thought about it ?
I know my answer and i think about it often. In 20 years my daughter will be 24 and my son will be 21. That’s makes me 50 !
When asked or in thinking I have always said the same thing… I want to be living in a tiny tiny older people beach town and work at a Waffle House or Gas Station. I’ve always answered in a joking matter but in the back of my mind I ment it. I know I know your thinking when you 50 you want to work at at restaurant or a gas station are you insane. Maybe !!
But when I’m that age I want my biggest problems to be is one of my plants dying? And planning weddings. And yes i still want to work and bring a smile to people’s faces daily i need that kind of routine and interaction in my life.
But i want nothing more. No stressful job where you can never be good enough or the possibility of letting someone down. The day to day meeting the deadlines and going home at night thinking… oh my ! did I send that e-mail before I left.
I want a safe amazing neat place for my kids to come and feel Un – connected. & Actually show them money is not happiness you can create a magical life being just happy not rich. Yes I know you have to have money to pay bills but what I mean is if you have enough to pay bills and eat and can still laugh and play at the end of the day that’s happiness.
From the time I was 16-19 years old I had more money than I will ever see again. I was a spoiled daddy’s girl still am just with love now not money. I honestly thought the brand new Mercedes I was driving each year made me who I was. I know bless my heart it was a mess. It attracted all the wrong people and made me feel untouchable. Bad combination when your definitely not living right. All the money I had then never made me happy.
So true story money does not and will never buy happiness. Money can buy fun not happiness don’t get them confused.
With that being said now and then I feel my gypsy soul kicking in and I drift off to a sand weathered tiny house with an amazing place to keep my weird and funky plants and the perfect spot to indulge in a new book. And ridding a bike to work and getting caught in the rain.
At heart I’m a gypsy… But taking a break to raise two beautiful kids the best way I feel is right & crossing my fingers that one day we will be searing for sea glass together.
So please tell me where do you see yourself in 20 years ???
