I had not realized how much I had embraced mindfulness and living each day as it comes until my therapist asked me where do I see myself in five years? And I had no answer. I am in a 401K plan so I am planning somewhat. The only true thing I do know is I don’t think I can do my night job for another five years. And there lies a quandary in five years I will be fifty. Not the best time to start over in the employment world. My hope is my pet and house sitting business can sustain me. I’m hoping NYC will still be in my life. I think I may have a book to write though I’m sure lots of people think they have books in them too.
So about the five year plan, what do you think? Do you make five year plans? I take photos a lot more now than I did five years ago and chase the light and shadows as evidenced by the sunsets, shades and trellis pictures I’ve included in this post. I’m more at peace than I was five years ago. What I want and need in friendships and relationships has changed too.
I am on vacation this week and looking forward to attending the Maryland Horse Expo tomorrow, I hope to go to Assateague Island, read many of the books I have about my apartment and draw. Sadly NYC is not able to visit this month. I’ve learned a lot about myself being with NYC. I find a sense of peace and happiness with him that I have not had before. Despite our age difference and distance I find it to be a relationship that is working well for me.
Have a beautiful weekend!
