Thursday Thoughts: Week 25 Future Plans

Thursday Thoughts Future Plans The Wandering Asian Couple

I don’t normally give much thought about future plans. The reason being is that I don’t know where I’ll be and what our situation will be. Luckily, everything has kinda worked out. Or has it?

We never book vacations more than a few months ahead. Most of the time, it’s last minute bookings. Even on this travel journey, we really didn’t have a confirmed, solid plan with airfare or accommodation bookings more than (at most) two months ahead.

However, now that we’ve done a great deal of travelling and have a better insight of what we want (or what we think we want), it’s now necessary that we think about our future.

Our Future Plans

It’s something that we have recently been having much conversations about. One day, I’ll agree on something and the next day I’ll change my mind. I blame it on hormones! Lol!

I have also been thinking that no matter what situation we are placed in, it’s what you make of it. Hence, no matter where we are in the world, it’s being appreciative of what we have which will lead to happiness and contentment.

I do know that after many months of travelling, I’d like to be stationary for several months (at least). Travelling, to me, is a benefit or a reward. It’s not something that I’d like to do day-to-day. It get’s lonely, even with a travel partner.

Moreover, spending time with family and friends and seeing your nieces and nephews grow up is more valuable at this stage of my life.

So Where Will We Be?

More than likely, it seems, we will be where most of our family and friends are and that is Toronto, Canada. However, there are still many unanswered questions, such as will we stay for a few or several months? Or will we stay for much longer? Is it going to be short term or longer term? Or will we make Canada our base and travel to a warmer climate during the winter months?

Setting Future Plans

We will continue to have these discussions and I hope that we can have a confirmed plan in place soon.

Sometimes I feel that I’m in a dream being able to visit so many parts of the world consecutively. I think about when most people are waking up early to get to work while I don’t have a schedule. I feel terrible for being able to do this. However, I know that we worked hard and made sacrifices for what we have.

In any case, I feel that I must set all these feelings aside and think about what we want most and where we see ourselves happiest.

    Hi Alicia,

    You may want to get involved in some side hustles. It does not have to be a full-time employment. The side hustles consist of the hobbies which you have been yearning to do but put back due to the full-time employment.

    My two cents worth of views.

      Yes, I’ve been thinking about that. It’s definitely something that will probably succumb to and that actually excites me! 🙂
