When I think about my future, I see beautiful and big things. I see myself finishing high school and going to college for my nursing degree. I also see myself raising my son and watching him grow into the wonderful young man that he will be one day. My future means so much to me because not only does it impact my life, but it also impacts my son’s as well. My whole life I have looked forward to my future because I’ve always seen it being bright and beautiful. In the future I see myself graduating high school, going to college, having a good job, having a nice car and house, having a wonderful husband, and a beautiful family. My future has always been very important to me because I’ve always wanted to make my family and friends proud of me. I’ve had a rough life, but I’ve always looked to the future and never will give up.
