Where do you see yourself in 5 years ?


They say that people who don’t know who they want to be in the future, are doomed to failure in life.

You need to have a plan for your future life. You need to prepare yourself, educate in specific area, gain work experience… And if not… Well, you will never get there…

I partially agree with this. I understand that if you want to be successful in specific area of work and life, you need to have a plan.

But what if you don’t know who you want to be ?

Does it mean that from now on, you can just sit on your butt and wait for the last day of your life, because your dreams will never come true ?

No, it doesn’t.

As a person who was always confused and had problems with judging on what do I want, I still believe in my bright future.

I have done so many different things in my life, I tried to follow so many different paths… And if someone would ask me now: “so Patrycja, who do you want to be in future ?” I would have to say “I don’t know.”

If you are just like me – high five !

But I would like to ask you a question. Just a one simple question.

Who you don’t want to be in your future ?

This might narrow your searches. But it might take a while.

Promise me, that you will never stop searching for your life path. Don’t be afraid to take a risk and make mistakes. This will be the only way to find your happiness in life.


Where do I see myself in 5 years ? I don’t know. But at least now I know what do I want.

I want to be healthy, happy, still in love. I want to have great and inspiring people around me. I want to do something that will make me happy and feel financialy secure. I want to be able to travel to my parents to eat lunch together and sit with a glass of homemade wine and watch TV. I want to have good relations with my family and friends. I want to feel loved and needed.


I guess these things should be priorities. We should focus on them as well, because career will never make us fully happy. There will be always something missing.

And what about you ? Do you know who you want to be ? Or you are already living your dream life ?
