Not where I want to be.

Monday, November 18, 2013

I'm not where I want to be in life. You know how in your senior year in high school, you have to make that 5-year plan? Well, I'm at 5 years out of high school now and I've only accomplished one of the many things on my list. Actually, I scoffed at the fact that people would CHOOSE to go to the college I am going to now. I thought that I was above it, but apparently not. I'm not really any more fit, I'm not in a relationship, I have no money, and my education could be a bit further by now. I could have finished a Master's degree by this point. That's my biggest regret/concern right now. I have one Associate's and only half-way through another, a process that should take 3-4 years. It's going to take me 6.5 years instead. Plus, I still live at home.
I honestly thought that within 5 years I would have dropped all this extra weight and be really fit. But I haven't and I'm not. I don't even have any fit friends that re interested in any kind of sports that are fun to me.

    It can be so easy for us to expect so much from ourselves. It is good to set and have goals, but if we don't achieve them that is okay. Because that gives us something to work towards. You will get there, and you are so young. It is amazing how much our beliefs change over time and what you want now may be really different in a few years. Keep aiming for your goals and congratulate your self on what you have achieved so far.
    As for fit friends, maybe you could join a sports club and then you would be amongest fit people or ones getting fit. You could show your less fit friends new ideas of fun things to do-maybe soccer, rugby,bad minton,tennis who knows emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon Even the gym could be fun, karate emoticon

    I struggled in my twenties, and didn't finish my BA until I was thirty. Then, I went for my masters in my early forties. It really didn't make much of a difference that I spent so long (due to some complications).. It was still sweet to graduate, and then ultimately go on and continue with my career. Best wishes to you, Glenn
