Where do you see yourself i 5 years? In 10 years? In 15 years?
This question is hard for me. In the past, when I have made plans, they fell through and everything turned to shit.
I eventually want to move back to the desert. Two things are sort of holding me back . . . My MoM and my job.
My mom is 70 and not getting any younger. At the same time, my in-laws are in their mid-80s and not in the best of the health. They live in the desert.
My job because a position has not yet been created out west. Currently, all the positions for my department are local.
If at all possible, I want to retire from my company. I love where I work and most of the people I work with. (I can’t say all because some are not so pleasant to work with.) I love what I do. So if I can retire, this would take me well past the 10 and 15 year mark.
I try not to think too far ahead mostly because I know tomorrow is never guaranteed. For me, it is important to live and love in the here and now.
