Real Talk: 10 Years.

Ciao Bellas,
Yesterday in one of the bible study groups at my church, the pastor asked us each where we see ourselves 10 Years from now. Not just generally speaking, but specific details and such (like where do you want to live? What will your house look like? How much are you willing to spend on said housing? Where do you see yourself working? etc). We were then challenged to write a list on the subject, and bring it back for next week. I wrote mine out this morning, and it's amassed to a double sided page of paragraphs (and a few self explanatory sentences) with little pink hearts as bullet point markers (I couldn't resist). Honestly the whole experience has really made me think. For the most part, I've always known what I wanted...and I suppose I didn't realize how much there was (I can picture some of my friends being like "...the man said 10 years girl, not 10 lifetimes!"). The main thing that I appreciate, is that the pastor is trying to direct our attention towards the fact that we need a game plan. We can't just stumble through life blindly, going where ever the wind blows us, until we find something we think we might be ok with. Also that it's important to keep in perspective our dreams and goals, and making sure that the things we do day by day, are ultimately working towards achieving what we want in life. Lately it seems like a lot of people are asking me a lot of questions about my future, like the kind that you may keep in the back of your mind, discuss with your friends every once in awhile, but probably aren't thinking about too often (I've gotten everything from this 10 years challenge, to being asked what I look for in a man...though I'm well aware of the intent of the latter question). As long and detailed as my list is (everything from wanting to get married, to continuing my philanthropic efforts), I am absolutely 100% determined to accomplish every single thing on it by the grace of God. So now I pose to y'all the same question that my pastor asked me: Where do you see yourself in 10 years?
Stylishly Yours,
Ms. Fab
