I know I’ve talked about this in the past I’m for real this time. I need to start taking steps for my future. I need to get healthy (or more healthy). I need to think of my career. I need to plan for 30 years from now. I’m not old but at the same time I’m not getting any younger!
I’m a believer in planning. I’ve made 5-year plans in the past. Did I always follow that plan? No. Have I achieved results from planning ahead? Yes. I like to think that I am true to myself. That I do what I say I’ll do. Most of tge time this us true. But from time to time things slip by me before I can react.
I’ve been working on my 5-year plan lately. I’ll tell you parts of it but not all.
1. Get in shape- I want to get healthy. I want to ensure that I will be here in 24 more years (more than that hopefully).
2. Live the life- I’m 24. If I die at 48 I’m already passed mid life! I am NOT living to my potential. There is do much more to me than I let out. I’m not happy doing the same thing everyday, every week or every month. Just getting by isn’t enough. I believe we were put on earth to live and enjoy life. I’m not unhappy with my life but I want more. I need to stop settling for what IS and start looking for what MORE there is.
3. Define my career- as much as I live my job, is this what I want to do with my life? The answer is no. I want more. And with Kroger there is more. You can move up the ranks if you really want to do that. I’ve come a long way over the last 6 years. I’m going to go much further. I need to go to school, get a degree and see what opportunities there are out there for me. It may be with Kroger and it may not be. I will say that I love my Pay Less family. I’ll be thankful for them for life. Even thre thought of leaving makes me sad.
Those three things are just small pieces of tge ‘plan’. Now I need to aak myself how I get this plan moving. One thing at a time!
