My 10 Year Plan

ask
Side Note: This did start off as a 5 year plan but as I started listings all the things I wanted to achieve it didn’t quite seem realistic that in 5 years I’d be at the end of this particular journey and have my own bridal store up and running. (So all in all, this was a useful exercise for me)

They say if you want something you have visualise it, speak it into existences and write it down (I say they, I’ve just heard this before).

For me my 10 year plans consists of knowing what I want and roughly when I want that to happen.

I can literally see myself at the end of my journey, sitting in the back of my bridal boutique, teaching student different sewing techniques while my colleagues see to customers in the front, knowing that I need to pull my sketches together, as I have a client coming in, in the afternoon to go through designs for her perfect dress.

That particular vision is not cloudy at all. What is unclear is how I get there which is why it’s important to write it all down.  For me it’s easier to work backwards, as I already know where I want to end up.

I’ve never really shared any of this before and feel a little exposed in doing so, but hey if I don’t speak this into the universe or write this into existence then it may never happen.

So here goes:
