Let’s talk about the future. Your future, to be exact. There are so many great days ahead of you. Adventures to have, so many things to see and do. So many people to meet. This is only the beginning.
Have you ever really thought about what you want your future to be like? If not, try it sometime. Take some time alone, and just think.
What do you want to be known for?
What kind of character do you want to have?
How do you want to impact this world?
What about a career? What are you interested in? School may seem to be never ending sometimes, especially when it gets boring. Eventually you’re going to graduate (if you haven’t done so already) and enter the wonderful world of adulthood. If what you choose to do for a living is something that makes you happy, your life will be more satisfying than if you end up doing work that you’re not passionate about.
Not too long ago, women were very limited in what we could be – as far as a career goes. Although we are still struggling in some areas as far as receiving the same pay as men, we can be just about anything we want. We can be astronauts, judges, doctors, lawyers, athletes, and more! When you’re thinking about choosing a career, dream big because the sky is the limit, and then do what you need to do to make it happen. Go to college, culinary school, the army, nursing school, or wherever your training takes you.
What about a family? Do you want to get married? Do you want children? If so, what kind of wife and mother do you want to be?
Where would you like to live? Moving away from home can be a little scary at times, especially if your family doesn’t come with you. It can also be a refreshing adventure, if you move to a place that you enjoy.
There are so many things to think about when it comes to the future. These are just a few. To make your future great, you have to participate in it – starting with the choices you make today. Every choice matters, no matter how big or how small it is.
Dream big. Set high goals. Make good decisions. Invest in yourself. Get the education that you need. Remember that you can do anything that you put your mind to. When you make mistakes, your plans change, or things don’t quite work out the way you planned it to, don’t give up. Keep pushing until you see something great. As long as you’re still alive, you have a future ahead of you. Here’s to a great one!
