3 more years...

as i sat in my living room last night that's what i thought to myself...

"dude i have ONLY 3 more years until i'll be 30 years old!"

geesh that's NOT really that far off...like what i am i going to do with the next 3 years of my life? where do i want to be? what do i want to be doing? who do i want to be?

like there are so many thoughts running through my head right now...

professionally: of course i am satisfied in my current position, but NOT that satisfied that THIS is where i want to be in 3 years...i want to complete my project management certificate, i want to get my public health generalist graduate certificate from GW

personally: of course i would love to be married or at least planning a wedding...thinking that i would have a child by 30 is out i guess, but you never know, but 3 years doesn't seem like a long time especially when you really think about getting married and coming together with someone you know

financially: i would love to be out of debt, like really...truck paid off, credit cards, the whole nine. that will require some major sacrifices but you know it'll be worth it if i can get out...i would also LOVE to buy a condo and be a home owner before i am 30, hell i'd love to be one now, but previous financial mistakes and the past housing market wasn't going to allow for that, but now its a possibility

spiritually: i want to just keep growing, in mind, body and spirit! i have come alone way with my faith and my ability to remain faithful no matter what...and i want to continue that growth to the fullest you know...nothing like growing and building a relationship with GOD

confidence: finally i am feeling GREAT in my own skin, in my own decisions, in my own life, and i know that even when mistakes are made i will continue to grow into my own...

i have learned NOT to make a "life plan" but rather to set "goals" for myself...can't plan life out, seems to me that every time you do, you end up disappointed, but rather if you set goals and are open to the changes that life may bring, you tend to do better...at least that's how i see it...

man, only 3 years until 30, dude/dudets imma gettin up there, ya know...but hey the lady at the MAC counter thought that i was just turning 21, no seriously, HA!
