Is it a hard question? I myself am not set on this one yet. I don't know what my life would be after five or even ten years from now. I know I'm getting married this December, which makes me excited, too. As I look forward, I don't know where our relationship will take us. Of course, I hope the spark and our love for each other will always be there. For my career, I don't know if I will still be working for a call center. However, if I am to choose, I want to go back to my province and have my own little business from there. What about you?

For my love,I hope I can buy one ring to my GF,and I hope we can marry in the future,and more I hope I can take my parents to Shanghai. I hope ,there have so much things I hope,But I know the future maybe not what I hope,But I want to wait.

Your plans are exciting; I can feel that you are one active person, very enthusiastic in life and always on the go. If you have plans, be serious about it and give yourself a deadline. Then, work hard to achieve it. Before you know it, you are living the life beyond your expectation.

I'm really not sure where I'll be in 5-10 years from now. I'm currently just out of school and I'm working a job that many people would LOVE to have. I'm glad I was able to get my foot in the door as the money is nice. It's not great but it's better than my last job and it has excellent benefits. I can't say where I'm going to be in the next few years because I truly don't know.

Oh, that's good to hear. That, even if you're not done with school yet, you were able to land a job that you are happy with. I hope that passion remains, hopefully 5 years from now. hehee You made me curious. If I may ask, what's your job right now?

reading the title and the post... made me to think about my past life... and i realized i have never lived in one place for that long (5 years), we always move from one place to another, even when i was a child and up to now that i have my own family... i realized moving is a part of me. at this point in my life looking over the future five years from now, i think ill be in another country, or i could well be traveling by then. it has been a dream of mine to travel. i may have my own restaurant business by then.

Home: Married with Children is ideal. Career: A job that I can be happy with. I want to find my calling. I'd also like to have a career and not just a job. Education: I want to pursue education the highest degree possible. I want to go back to college and finish getting my bachelors. I want excel as best I can. Basically I want to shoot for the best, and with the cards I was dealt with make the most of it. (=

It is a hard question cause not everybody have goals and vision for their life. I imagine 5 years from now I have been promoted to higer position in my office since actually that was they promoise back when I joined them last year. 10 years from now I imagine have a master title from a respectable overseas university and have my own business which ius my goal since high school, to become an entrepreneur.

What a wondrful and interesting question. Where will I be...? Well I am currantly a missionary in the country of Ukraine. So I obviously would say I might be here still, however I would love to go home in between then and now. However no one really know where we will be, we can only hope and guess. The only one who knows our future is God. He has already written the book of all our lives. He knows what the future holds for all of us. He is the author and finisher of our lives. And I am grateful that I can rest securely in the palm of his hand!

i like the picture on your profile, really beautiful. Now i'm trying to answer your question. It's really hard to say. We all know it's difficult to know the future. Nobody can control the future. However we can do something now to near the future we want. For me I wish in 5 years i can be a qualified traslator and writer in English. Then I will have more chance to work around the world. For it I study English every day and I think I'm not uneducated person. I have the ability to control the language. I feel confident with myself. Even the future will be fine to me, the present life still makes me frustrating sometimes.No pain, no gain. I know it,but when I experience it I still feel frustrating and negative.

That's exciting. I wish to experience the last part- "spending the Summer's at the lake house." I want to experience that in less than five years from now. I want to have a vacation!!! Seriously!!!

Hey, I don't really know where I would be 5-10 years from now, I honestly have no idea. I can't really predict what I will be doing in 5-10 years from now, because I could be doing many things. Make sure you have a good day, God bless and Happy Lotting!!

Hello! Sounds like a nice plan with the business ;) In about 5 years I hope to be more well off so I can start my family . There are so many little things that need to be done before we can even dream of that and so much catching up to do . Life really can change course and so many things can happen out of the blue so who really knows. Maybe I will publish my book and travel the world and move out of the state or country. No matter what I hope its good and that i am happy!

My wishful thinking that in 5-10 years from now I would be in my own place (renting or my own) happily married and enjoying going thru life with my family. I have no doubt about who I am going to be with but I am still wishing that I would then finally decide what I want to do in life. I have so many ambition in life that I am still praying God would show me to where I should be. But definitely I would be in a better place to where I am at right now. That I am sure of.

Who knows? Although there are people who persevered and became the person they would like to be 5-10 years after, there are also people who fell victim to failures no matter how they tried. I guess it depends really but more often, those people who persevered usually get what they want. I believe there is a difference between a "dreamer" and the "person who has a dream". A dreamer will just dream but you wont see any actions yet the person who has a dream will do things in order to achieve the dream.

I have some plans on what I am going to do in the future but I am lacking the knowledge and the desire to do so. I also needed some starting capital to do what I need to do. I always wanted a solid job or used to but right now I am aiming for my own business due to the hard time I faced now. I am used to have a good time before making bad decision. I need to bounce back from terrible times starting from now with more effort. Thank God for He had gave me strength to bounce back.As for the future we won't know exactly will happen

Hi! Five to ten years from now, i should have passed the board exam and finish my Masters degree. I am also married so by that time i would like us to have 2-3 children, have our own business, my husband will be home for good, and hopefully, we could pay our house fully. As for the rest, i'm very positive and im hoping for the best to come and of course to stay healthy. I want to enjoy my life ahead of me.
