I guess so...like countless others, I'm 65, retired, and living in Florida. OMG, after all this time, after my wild young days as a hippie-freak musician living in a sixth-floor walkup in the East Village, I've gone to the complete other end of the spectrum. From one cliche to the exact opposite, O God I can't stop laughing at myself. This is just too funny and I never realized it before. Please excuse the ramble, but this is a truly astounding, incredibly funny epiphany for me. O God, I can't believe it!! *wanders off, tears running down cheeks and stomach aching from laughing so hard at self*
no--I thought I'd be dead by now.
Depends on what day you ask
Yup, sort of.
No, very little about my life turned out the way I expected---or planned.
Not even close...
worse... life has a way of throwing you off track- I am much better than I once was, but a lot of what I had when I was a younger man was lost...
i am much futher on
Not really. I kind of just lived my life with two goals and none will be finished before 50.
no i did not get married to end up sick and alone------after 44 yrs finding out you chose a lying cheater,who destroyed my family ,is a hard pill to swallow------
Well I didn't imagine myself having suicidal thoughts and getting bad grades at this age:/
yes but better than expected. my future's so bright I gotta wear shades!
Pretty much, actually. I'm very satisfied with myself.
It's a mixture of hard work and adjusted expectations. It's all about balance, and willingness to work toward goals. Slow and steady really does win the race.
No. I invested a lot of time and energy into a long-term relationship; basically lived for him instead of myself. I've only recently realised, since the break-up, that I should have been building something for myself.
No but... feck it anyway, it's only life and it'll all be over soon enough, thank Christ!
No, life has had a lot of bumps, curves, and dead ends. It's been a long and lonely road and I am running out of gas.
Smiling, blushing. Wish I knew you when I was younger. The future wouldn't have a chance with us together as friends.
No where near it or happy.
No i am not
No, unfortunately not, because I have always catered to everyone else's needs but my own :( But I am beginning today to stop that. YAY ME!!!!
No. I thought I'd be dead long ago.
I am trying to be honest, I have sat and thought about it, but I can't remember what I was reaching for, it feels like I have been on this earth for a damn sight longer than 48yrs, altho' endeavouring to end on a positive - just maybe I haven't got there yet..she says with no conviction, only delusion, lol.
I always left it blank. I was not very ambitious or cared about anything, but now that I am a mom I do see a future for myself within the next 5 years.
I plan on being a nurse and then after that I would like to be a pharmacist. I am really scared of nursing but I am already in the field so that's all.
