Five Places I Want to Be in Five Years

22 Feb

1. Working at a company where I can show my true colors and shine. No, I don’t know where I’d like to work, but, I’m learning to to take it day by day to see where life takes me. I just hope it’s somewhere that loves fruits, veggies, and working out.  ;). A 9-5 Monday-Friday gig would be nice too!


Proud “real-person” moment: teaching Public Health to Boy Scout troops

2. A  regular at a yoga studio where I practice or am learning to be a teacher.



3. Being able to hold my own. This is very important to me. I’m so proud of myself for paying for Graduate School on my own so I don’t have loans, but to pay for my own place, car, and more will be a day to pat myself on the back. I’m so thankful for the support of my family in following my goals. I’d fall to pieces without them.


Chris and Kristen’s Rehearsal dinner. Great memories! A special shout out to my cousin, Rose and Aunt Betty and Uncle Bob, who I know read my blog too! Love you guys!

4. A weekend adventurer. I daydream about going on yoga retreats, blend retreats, surf vacations, hiking trips, running in races, learning to paddle board, concerts, visiting my brother and sister-in-law, and far away friends.


Skating at Rockefeller Center would be pretty stellar too!

5. Balanced 🙂


Cartwheels bring me back to youth!

Each moment, day, assignment, and yoga pose will bring me closer. in the meantime, I’ll be living for today. Otherwise, things might become a little too overwhelming!



Where is one place you’d like to be in five years?

Have the most wonderful weekend!

    I love all of these goals! Paddle boarding is such a fun sport and I would love to attend a blend retreat one day! That’s awesome that you’re able to pay for your own grad school- most people can’t do that! Working at a 9-5 job that has a passion for health would be my idea workplace too 🙂

      Thank you! Maybe I’ll be able to try Paddle boarding this summer? One day at a time, right? Paying for graduate school is a big feat! I’m fortunate that I can pick up a lot of hours at work when needed. We’ll both get our 9-5 job that has a passion for health one day! 🙂

    I couldn’t agree more with balanced, that is what I strive for daily. It is learning process but so doable.

      It sure is a learning process! We’ll get there and blog about our balanced lives! 🙂

    I LOVE this post! My mom is training to be a yoga teacher this spring, which is such an inspiration to me 🙂 It sounds like you have really awesome goals and that you are doing all the right things in working towards them. Have a great weekend. Thanks for sharing these!!

      Thank you! That’s so great your mom is training to be a yoga teacher! I’m so excited for her! I hope you have a great weekend too!! 🙂

    Love this post! Thought it was going to be about vacations you wanted to take but I like this so much better 😀

    Such great goals! It’s so nice being able to stop and refocus on what is important to you every once and again. Reminds you where you’ve come from and where you are going!

    I also would love to train to be a yoga teacher at some point. I have to say though, being a grown up and paying for a my house, car, student loands, etc is over rated someday 😉

    • bananasforyogaandyogurt February 23, 2013 at 8:44 pm #

      Thanks Emily! It’s so nice being able to stop and refocus on what is important every once and again, I really never had time to do that in the past.

      With your dance background, you’d be a great yoga teacher! There’s something about yoga that makes me want to come back for more. I want to share my love of yoga with others!

    I loved this post!! balance is key, and I think you nailed it with the five places. I daydream about adventures all day long too :]

    • bananasforyogaandyogurt February 26, 2013 at 9:41 pm #

      Thank you!! Balance is key! Daydreaming never ceases to put a smile on my face! It helps the time pass too…especially when at work…when there’s not much going on of course! I love the name of your blog!! 🙂

    Great post, five years is a skip away, I swear as I get older time flies by so fast! In five years I want to be a mom, change 1,000 women’s lives, enter in a fitness competition and have a successful fitness business. Sending you tons of luck for the next 5 years of your life. love + shine Courtstar

      Time does fly! Thank you for your wishes! I’m sending tons of luck right back to you!! I have to say, your goals rock! I think your changing lots of people’s lives each day, especially with your blog too! 🙂

    oh man, I so hope i’m a little more balanced in 5 years! and some weekend adventures would be awesome 🙂

    • bananasforyogaandyogurt March 1, 2013 at 9:03 pm #

      It sounds like you’re on the right track! It’s inspiring to me that at 23, you’re an RD! I think that is awesome! Hopefully we’ll be blogging about our weekend adventures soon! 🙂
