"Where do you see yourself in 5 years?”
It’s a question we get all the time. On job interviews, here on GAG, family gatherings. For some its hard to plan what they are doing tomorrow or even tonight. Then there are others that know exactly what they are going to do 5 years from now, down to the day. If you don’t have your life planned don’t sweat it. Its not a pre requisite for anything in life, trust me. Sometime you just have to let things go, and trust the timing in your life.
Everything happens for a reason, and the worst thing you can do is start comparing your life to someone else’s. Expectations can kill a simple man. While you may be at the start of your journey, the person you are comparing yourself to may be in the middle of their journey, or even at the end.
I know I know, social media is no help, and I know it all feels overwhelming at times. Everyone’s brothers sisters cousins hamsters owners best friends nieces child is getting married or having kids, and while this may not bother men all that much, it creeps into the darker recesses of the fairer sexes mind.
I wish I could tell you why certain events in our life happen. Why we didn’t get the job we wanted, or the person we thought we would spend our whole life with suddenly packs their bags and leaves. But one day, someday and I promise you this, in the future you will look back and say to yourself “wow everything worked out” You will smile when you look back, because you are older and wiser, and verything that you have gone through has led you to where you are now. You will be at a better job, be with a better person, be in a better place and you will see that everything you were fretting and sweating about when you were younger, wasn’t really anything at all.
I know you probably don’t believe me right now, hell sometimes I don’t even believe myself. But you have to have faith that something good out there is waiting for you. Not everything is as bad as it seems, and be grateful for things, even if they are small things. What do you have to be thankful for? Maybe it’s a place for you to go that you don’t feel anxious or depressed. Maybe it’s a significant other who makes you howl with laughter
So kids, when life gives you lemons, grab some tequila, and take a shot. Life really isn’t that bad
