The process of overcoming an obstacle forces us to adapt to uncomfortable situations. And that alone makes us stronger.
In my humble opinion, 5-year plans are silly. As I grow older, I get to know myself better. I have a better understanding of what I want in life than I did 5 years ago, and I imagine that I will have an even better understand 5 years from now. We simply keep growing, and maybe that’s all we need to ask of ourselves.
