What will you be doing 7 years from now?????

Tuesday, March 04, 2008

What will you be doing 7 years from now????? This question was recently posted on the Making Life happen on purpose team....it really made me think. I am posting a copy of my answer in my blog so I have a record of it........a little reminder :)
This one really had me thinking all day yesterday too!! I realized that life got too busy in the last few years and I forgot what I am really passionate about. Eons ago I decided I wanted to go back to school for Naturopathy or Holistic Nutrition. I still feel this is something I need to do. Unfortunately my husband does not feel the same way and is not very supportive when it comes to going back to school, when I was in my 30's it was already a waste of time and money....too old to go back to school! I'm 42 now! Can anyone tell me how too deal with this type of negative energy??
Ok so I am going to set the bar high here and say in 7 years I will have at a minimum a bachelors degree in Holistic nutrition and be working in this field.
I will also be at my healthiest and happiest!
Oh, cant forget this.... I will have my 2nd degree and be well on my way to my 3rd degree black belt and be teaching on a part time basis. TKD is something I am very passionate about, through it I found the strength to make major changes in my life and I would love to have the opportunity to teach others.
Thanks so much for starting this thread Lisa!

    Maybe if your husband sees how happy you are when you read books about the topic he'll change his mind(?) Perhaps he's worried other things will go by the wayside if you start school...ie. the house work, his dinner, etc. Assure him nothing else will change. You'll just be happier!

    I'm well ahead of you, I'm 58 and I can tell you that you're going to get here in a hurry. It's become a cliche, but it's very true, we only live this life once and it goes by in a hurry. I'm lucky, my wife approaches life pretty much the same way I do. We believe that life is an adventure and we're to experience as much of it as possible. As a result, we do activities in a year than some couples do in 15 years. We hike 38 states so far), we bike (trail and mountain), we kayak and canoe and this is just the beginning of our list. My point is not to point out what we do, but to convince you that you've got to find the way to live your way to the fullest. How do you get past your husbands negativity? I wish I had a good answer for you, but I do believe that you're going to have to convince him how important this is to you. Somehow convince him that reaching your goals will benefit him somehow as well as benefiting you. I wish you success in stretching out and living life to it's fullest.
    Life is good.
