Ten Years Fron Now Essay, Research Paper

What? How? When? Ten Years?

It always amazed me to see that I constantly change my

answer to the question of where do I see myself in ten

years. I will be in the mid thirties in ten years

from now, and by then I will probably be more

grounded. As always, my answer is depended on whom I

hang out with at the moment as well as leisure

activities I am engaging in. Sometimes I see myself

in my favorite movies characters such as babe from the

movie “pig in the city,” or a part-time working wife

as in “Stepmom”. Other times I see myself in an image

of the lady who did the advertisement for Christian

Children Charity encouraging people to donate money

for the poor. I can see myself in many forms and

shapes of life; however, many of them are just my

imagination. Beyond all that imagination, I often

see myself as a productive individual in the society

as a red-cross nurse, a divorce woman with no

children, and/or a widow living with my chronically

ill mother.

Becoming a productive member in our society is my

dream. I like to work as a nurse to make positive

differences in people’s lives. To me, nursing is a

very important role in our society because it serves

people in both physical and emotional when they are

most in need of care and attention. I see myself

through helping others. And in helping others to

achieve their maximum level of function, I find

happiness. I realize that there are still many

unfortunate people, especially those who live in the

third world countries, suffering from illnesses. I

keep on telling myself to do something to get close to

those people who are in uncomfortable stage of living.

And the only way for me to do it is to work my way to

become an experienced nurse. Thanks God, I am

becoming a license nurse in no more than a month. I

feel that my dream is half way fulfilled. I now deal

with more and more sick people, and the amazing thing

about it is I never get bore taking care for them over

and over again. Moreover, I even feel worthy when all

that I do is referring a patient to a health clinic

that can help with her particular needs. Everything

else regarding my imagination or my dream may changed

over time, but the self urge to help the sick won’t

ever be changed even in ten or twenty years from now.

To be more helpful to the society, I need to continue

my education to become an expert in nursing. I

realize that the most effective way to get close to

the sick is to work, work, and work as a nurse. I

then would like to joint the Red-Cross team so I would

have more of the opportunity to reach to those far

away in the third world countries. It will be

challenging for I, on the other hands, want to settle

down with a family.

Most girls at my age want to get married, have kids,

and have a happy family. I am no different. However,

I don’t think that I can maintain a family for long.

The eager to become a working woman is way stronger

than a dedicated mother and wife. I don’t want to get

marry, and then stay home clean up after my husband,

and give birth to as many children as my husband

prefers. I want to work away from home, and

contribute my life to the society in general, and to

the poor as well as sick people in particular. Hence,

family would then be a burden if I marry someone who

is not in support of my dreams. Indeed, I doubt that

I can find a man who can be so generous to let me do

all the things that I dream of doing. It does not

sound so promising, but I think in ten years I will

end up filing a divorce document if I have ever

married. So, why can’t I just be a widow after all?

It is very likely that I will become a widow, though.

In my culture we are very superstitious. I was born

in the year of the tiger, and like many other people I

know including my mother who were also born in the

year of the tiger, all became widows or at least get

divorce once. Personally, I do not believe in

superstition, but I can’t deny the fact that it is

effecting on my mother. She has been up and down in

many relationships, and at the end, she ends up with a

divorce. She now is living with me with her chronic

disease of hypertension and diabetes. Another reason

for me to see myself as a widow is that I do not know

if I can ever find a man who love me. I have learned

that there are no men, but all boys out there. I keep

on asking is there a man out there willing to go along

with me and my dreams?Still, there has been no answer.

Anyhow, I prefer to live my fullest life, fulfil my

dreams, and stay single to take care for my mother,

who will be in need for a lot of medical attentions in

ten years from now.

Those are not my imagination, but my dreams. I dream

of become a Red-Cross nurse who will travel to many

different poor countries to bring cures and health to

people devastated by illnesses. I see myself in a

broken family, yet I rise up and continue to work for

my dreams and for the society. I also see myself as a

big help for my mother as well as other mothers who

are lonely and are suffering as they go through their

aging process. All that I see now will be so for the

next ten years? so, I hope.
