Everyone is talking about Back to the Future today, because Oct 21, 2015 is the day Marty McFly arrived. It made me start thinking about my life 20 years ago and where I thought I would be at this time.
20 Years ago I was 14 and I thought by this time I would be married with kids, living in an old restored farm house and I would be a writer. A lot of those dreams were based on the life I thought I was supposed to grow up & live (the ideals your family & the place you grow up in puts in your head).
As I got older I realized my own dreams were very different from those traditional ones & my life took a lot of unexpected turns, as it does for most all of us… No I’m not married & don’t have kids (and I’m totally okay with that) & I don’t live in that restored farmhouse, but that writing dream/goal/love has never left me. I am glad that I am able to write through blogging, training and freelance articles. In 20 years I like to picture myself living at the beach, still writing & doing something helpful, inspirational, something that motivates and matters to someone, having a close circle of like-minded friends & family and travelling every chance I get.
20 years ago today where did you see yourself on this day, how did you picture your future? What were your dreams, goals and expectations for your life? Have you achieved any of them or is your life completely different than you thought it would be? Any of those dreams still burning in your heart to be achieved? What can you do to start reaching them so you won’t still be looking back in another 20 years?
