    Just thinking of what I am going to be after 5 years makes me nervous. Eventually, I do not know where my life will lead to, I will be 30 years old <now that really creeps me> by then and hopefully I have a stable life by that time with a good paying job. I don't see myself having my own house and car yet because I still need a lot of money to have one like those. I just don't depend my life on God's will because it is also I who do the rest of the decision that I am going to make.

    How about you???

    I think planning our lives 5 years ahead is an excellent exercise as it motivates us towards a certain directions and help us create concrete goals. Well I always plan 1 year ahead. I never planner where i will be after 5 years.

    I want to be in my cabin/house on about 10-15 acres, with fields and woods beyond. We have some beautiful spots around here and there's often ones up for sale with land lots of that size. I'd like a horse too so need the space. I'll still work from home, just from my cabin's front deck overlooking the land. :D

    In 5 years I'd like to have my own house with a small garden, having a good and rewarding job. And of course I'd like to have a lot of friends near me and my children.

    I plan on having my own successful business and to have a million Euro in the bank.

    That's great news youngkia1, many congratulations and the best wishes to you both for the future.

    I'm sorry Fergal typo error, what i mean is almost a "year" not "week" but that is our goal. To have our own baby/babies and we're really praying for that. Thanks Fergal appreciate it. :D

    Good luck also to your goal, when you reach that, hire us all here in BAF :D as your workers lolz.. ;)

    My website will have sold for more than I ever hoped for, we'll be debt free and will sell this house for a farmhouse with enough bedrooms for all the kids and several acres... off the grid :) A couple more corporate clients on retainer and a few very reliable and talented assistants! What a nice vision :)

    lol, this is like the classic interview question. Frankly, I see myself in different situations and only time will tell which direction im heading towards the possible scenarios. I like to spread my risk out and not bank on one dream or goal.
