Day 02: In 10 years… 

The lower left pic did not even change. I guess I really look like a guy. Hahaha! 😂

When I was in college, I was the type of person who lives in the here-and-now. I didn’t have long-term goals or plans for myself back then. I unknowingly began thinking about my future when I was already working. I was in danger of going #YOLO with my youthful energy and my pride. Ironically, I was taught to teach other people to listen well, and there I was struggling to teach myself how to listen. Good thing, I was able to feel the genuine love and care of people who gave me their wise counsel. ^_^

Anyway, this is how I see myself in 10 years. There are some details to it, but I’d rather be flexible with whatever comes my way. In 10 years… 

  1. I’ll still be teaching. In 10 years, I will be in my mid-30s. I would be thankful to God if I am still teaching during (and beyond) those years. I’ve proven to myself that teaching is really my passion. I enjoy witnessing other people learn and improve. I am excited at how my students will pass what they’ve learned to their peers, family, friends, etc. I honestly have no specific school/s in mind, I really wanted keep my options open with this one. Speaking of which… 
  2. I have my own school. This is one of my dreams when I took Music Ed in UP. I’m not sure yet if I wanted a studio- or a classroom-type of school. Whatever it may be, my goal is to reach out to others through music. I would like to serve the underprivileged, those who have the passion and the time to learn but don’t have the resources. I was actually toying with the idea of having a music outreach program in the nearer future. That will help me jumpstart this dream of mine.
  3. I have my own family. I still want to have enough energy and time for my future husband and kid/s. I know that I am not called by God to be single because I have a desire to have a lifetime partner. Haha. I do pray for my future husband and kids, that we will all grow together in the saving grace and knowledge of Jesus Christ. Of course, I do yearn for a holistically healthy family. If there will be any challenge that I need to face, I do hope that I can get through it with the help of God and my loved ones. 😊❤
  4. I’ll still be active in the Lord’s work. I will still be active in worship and youth ministries. If ever God allowed me to have more ministries, I will gladly accept it. However, I believe that my gifts are geared towards the worship and the youth. As for the church, I would like it to be CCBC, but we will never know. I will be flexible (and hopefully adjust well) wherever the Lord will lead me to serve.
  5. I will have my own library. This is a dream of mine since I was a wee li’l kid. I kid you not. Mama would usually tell me that I have too many books, and some of them are still unopened (thanks to BookSale for existing). I still prefer books over e-books because the LCD screen hurts my eye if I read for an hour. Even though technology is developing with an impressive speed, books will be here to stay. 📚
  6. My passport will have a stamp in it. I honestly enjoy and treasure my trips here in the Philippines. I can go back to local destinations anytime, as long as I have the resources. On the other hand, I would like to go out of the country as well (Konnichiwa! 안녕하세요). 

    That’s it, I guess. I don’t want to delve too much in the details. I like to be constantly surprised at what God has in store for me. I have to entrust to Him my future plans and let his will be done. I will end this blog post with a passage from God’s Word:

    Many are the plans in the mind of a man, but it is the purpose of the Lord that will stand.

    Proverbs 19:21 ESV
