Balance the here and now with your plans for what's to come. I always struggle with living in the moment and the sense of freedom that comes with it and planning for my future. I have many goals for my future including both professional and family goals, which is something else I will learn to balance.
In this process we must follow who we are. We will not always do things the same as someone else or think the same as someone else and that is OK. As long as you feel good in your gut that you're doing what is right for you then you're set. Things will work out. Maybe not immediately but things will work out in time.
