5 years from now, will I be the same person as I am now? Will I be in the same place as where I am now?
Honestly speaking, I don't want to picture myself on where will I be years from now. I have high hopes and dreams for myself. And I easily got frustrated when things doesn't go the way I planned it. But, that's life. "Life doesn't always go the way we planned it." Sometimes what we got is better than what we wanted.
But that doesn't mean that I don't have any plans. It's just that, I don't want to expect, I just want to be surprised.
5 years from now, I will be 28 years old by then, (sounds old!!! shocks), hopefully I already found what my heart truly desires. I hope that I already have a clearer view on what I want to do with my life. I may not have all my dreams come true by then, but hopefully I am one step closer than I am now. I hope that I will be a better version of myself by that time. I hope that by that time I will see things in a different and more appropriate way. I hope that I have done something that will make myself proud.
On the other hand, after 5 years, I hope that I already visited at least one country. I said to myself before, that when I turned 25 years old, I will be celebrating it in other country (I don't want to mention the name of that country for now), hopefully I will be able to fulfill that promise. I hope that I will be able to buy some of the things that I'm dying to have. And little by little I am starting to invest for my own place, a condo it is, and also for my own car. I hope that I will be able to treat my mom into something that she will be happy. I hope that I will be able to sponsor her for a trip to other county or wherever she wanted to go. Hopefully, I will be able to give her (if not everything) at least most of the things that she wanted.
See, I have lots of dreams and goals, but I don't want to expect that it will happen that soon. I just keep that dreams alive but without specific time frame. I know that it will happen, not in my desired time but in God's perfect timing. As I have said earlier, I don't want to expect, I want to be surprised.
And I hope that five years from now when I look back and read this, I hope that most of the things that I have here will come true. And I hope that I will be able to feel the self-worth and contentment that I'm trying to have. And I hope that I will be with the same people that I am with right now.
Just like what Popoy and Basha said in the movie One More Chance, "five years from now, ganito pa din kaya tayo?" Ako, five years from now, ganito pa din kaya ako? I hope not, I hope I will be a better person than I am now.
