Time

Ten years ago ...
My daughter was almost four years old.
My son was eight.
I was happily married.
I worked in a low-paying job that I really enjoyed.
I rented a townhouse.

Today ...
My daughter is almost fourteen years old.
My son is eighteen.
I'm divorced.
I work in a moderately paying job that could be more enjoyable.
I own my home.

Ten years from now ...
My daughter will be almost twenty-four years old.
My son will be twenty-eight.
I will still be divorced.
I will be working for myself with plans to sell the business and retire.
I will still own a home ... or two.

Yours is a good vision but why still being divorced?

This is so good! I wanted to post mine, but for now will keep it under lock and key. You know, sort of an addendum to my vision board.
