What Will You Do In 5 Years?

5 Years Blank-01

Since posting our latest update about the History of Cakes, we’ve been a bit reflective ourselves. In recognizing the importance of knowing where you came from and how it relates to how far you’ve gone, we also understand that there has to be a goal or end point as well. We started thinking, if this is from where we’ve come, where do we want to go to?

So we came up with our own 5-year “bucket” list, to freeze this moment in time as a starting point to look back on in 5 years. To see how far 21 & ‘Upcakes will go and our own personal lives as well. Since isn’t the point of a revolution to change how we see and interact with the world? Below you’ll find Danielle’s list, it’s simple and brings home the point of how precious our time really is and what’s important in life. Have a look, we’re not shy, hopefully it will inspire you to consider doing the same.

So we challenge you with this: What would you do in 5 years? Do you see yourself the next Betty Crocker or maybe just one to your kids? Do you see yourself living in some far off place, experiencing new adventures every day? Or maybe you just want to start as simple as taking time to curl up on the couch with that book you’ve been meaning to read. Take today as opportunity to reflect on what you really want out of life. And remember, no one ever did anything extraordinary by being “realistic”.

Now that may sound like a lot to ask and it can be daunting at first, but you may just find that what you really want isn’t that far off. And to help get the ball rolling, we’re offering any piece of 21 & ‘Upcakes merchandise of your choice from our store for free. Just submit your goals for the next 5 years either below in the comments or email us at 21andUpcakes@gmail.com. We’ll select one winner at random from all the submissions on May 1st. We’ve also included a blank template for you if you’d prefer to print and write out your own goals. Happy contemplating.
