What do you want your future to hold?

The future has been on my heart recently. I struggle with answering this question because fear has a grip on me, and I have been feeling very scattered.

As I get older, mortality consumes my thoughts. My parents are aging, and I simply can’t imagine life without them. But, as the saying goes, the only two things guaranteed in life are death and taxes.

Someone at work asked me if I wanted another child. I wrestle with that question as well because I recently realized I have an adventurous spirit. I have this insatiable desire to travel, and I worry if I wait till retirement to travel, I won’t get the chance to because I am not promised tomorrow.

I try to remember some sage advice I once received: live life with the end goal in mind.
