The Future

Today in class our teacher asked us to envision what our lives would be like in ten years, to help us come up withour own definition of success.

I imagined myself far from here, curled up on a couch next to a beautiful, kind girlfriend if not wife that I would share my life with, that I could be close to and that I could tell anything. And I would have a stable job that I would least like, and I would live in a place where I could look around every day with the same kind of amazement that I would have felt when I first arrived.

Looking at where I am now - emotionally, and based on location and mentality - and looking at that, at where I dream of being - well, obviously I've got a lot of work to do. But if I DO all that work, and I focus hard enough, then maybe I'll be able to get to that place. I need to be more goal-oriented, I guess.

Well, I try to be positive in my blogs, and this is one thing that we all need to work to remind ourselves: Life can always change with time, and if you work hard and dedicate yourself to your dream then your life can always get better. So, if, like me, you're dissatisfied with your life right now, just imagine that happy, healthy future for yourself and work for it, but still never forget to enjoy all of your life, and not to get lost dreaming and never wake up to live where your life is now. It's hard to keep dreams and reality balanced, I know - I'm the kind of person that, when I'm feeling sad about reality, I start dreaming and just fade out - but working on living now and planning for the future at the same time is what I'm going to start doing.

That's something I sort of realised today; now I just need straight A's and a college scholarship to the East Coast. So I guess, my message here is to follow your dreams and work toward them - unless fate throws something unexpected and even better your way.
This band is good, too, by the way.
