5 Years Down the Line | Part 3 | Shaini

5 years down the line?

A difficult question I have asked myself often and the answers I have given myself over the years have been different but none of them happened as I had envisioned them. Life has a way of throwing one into loops or curves you have never imagined them. Something like that has often happened to me over the years, so much so that I had decided to take every day as it comes and live with it.

But now that the question has been asked, it has me thinking where do I want to be in 5 years? Things might not happen as I will be thinking but that does not mean that I still can’t hope for something good to happen. So, all my good scenarios start with my daughters, the first being that I hope to be a grandmother in 5 years. 😊 which means that at least one if not both of them will be settled by then (I am hoping both). That I have my grandchildren while I am young enough for me to enjoy them.

While I wait for that to happen, I shall try to live a full life. Being a single parent, I have made sure that my life revolves completely around my girls. Now that they are independent and self-sufficient, I want to learn to live for myself. Taking a step forward I want to motivate myself to travel solo. I enjoy travelling but am scared of doing it alone, probably the correct phrase is- not comfortable travelling alone. I need to get over it, so hopefully, I can do it in the next 5 years.

I also want to say that I want to reduce my weight, but that would only be fanciful. I know that I want to do it but I am not going to do anything about it. This leads me to say that in the next 5 years I want to get over the urge to want something without wanting to work towards it. I am completely comfortable in my body as it is so why do they want to lose weight?

The most important thing I want in the next 5 years is for my kids to be happy and successful and content. This is all every mother wants. I shall be happy about it. So, at the end of the day happiness is all that matters. I see my family growing happily in the next 5 years.
