5 Years

I was going to write something for the writers work shop this week but non of the prompts really jumped out at me so I went to NaBloPoMo and they have prompts you can use to write about so I am going to pick on of them and write about that.  The one that I chose is: What do you want your life to be like in five years?  

Lets see in five years from today I will 30 about to turn 31.  This is hard because I have a hard time lately knowing what I want my life to be like right now.  I guess in 5 years I would like to be at a job that pays my bills and maybe even allows me to move out of my grandparents house.  I also want to have the MS be stable.   It would be so great for people not to know that I am sick unless I tell them that I am sick.  I am lucky right now because unless I tell you that I am sick you can’t tell I am.  It is nice for people not to know I am sick.  If people know they tend to treat me differently than before they knew that I was sick.  I hate when people are jerks to me until they find out I am sick then they try and be my best friend.  I also don’t care if I am with someone or not.  As long as I am happy where I am at the rest of it doesn’t really matter.   I just want to be happy with what is going on and where I am at is all.

Well that is what I hope my life will be like in 5 years.  I hope everyone has a great Thursday!

    Sounds like you have a good outlook on the future 🙂

    I don't like to speculate so much how my life will be, but like you I hope that there is a lot of happiness in it!

    I kind of like living in the moment, not knowing what the next day will bring – in a way, it takes the pressure off. I'm like you, I don't care where I am or what I'm doing in five years, as long as I'm happy and the bills are getting paid! Have a great day!

  3. I too think you have a good outlook. I hope that the MS eases up on you soon

    It's weird to think about people changing how they would treat you based on if they knew you were sick or not. People should be treated well regardless.

    Being happy is a great goal. 🙂

    Good luck with your goals. I know where I want to be in 5 years, but not sure how I'll be able to achieve that yet. I found your blog through Beth's and have subscribed 🙂
