Missing My 5 Year Plan

This is litterly the first time in 17 years that I have no 5 year plan. I am to planning what Oprah is too dieting. I always have a plan. And by plan I don't just mean one plan, I mean I have Plan A, B, C and a rough sketch of D. I think strategically. I constantly network. Or at least I used to.

In the last year I have lost some of my clarity. I think part of it comes from achieving my dream job (although I wish it was a little more permanent in nature) and completing my masters. Which, let's be honest, took way to long to complete. When you get to the place you have aspired to be it almost seems inevitable that you should plato. I mean it your at the top of Mount Everest, the only way to go is down. I don't want to go down. I am wondering if I can go sideways. I think sideways might be an viable option. At least until I figure out a new plan.

It is time to have a brainstorming session and decide where I want to be in 5 years. Thoughts?

This brainstorming session will require wine. LOTS of wine. I'm happy to do it, but must. have. wine. :)

I think a good five year plan would be to cater to your husbands every whim ror the next five years. This goal can be accomplished on a day to day basis with little extra forethought or resources. As a perfectly anonymous individual who does not know you, that would be my recommendation.
