I was kind of sad listening to that Ted Talk.

That woman had a "plan" to live her sentimental life? She planned to go to Petra, name her daughter Petra, be married before X age old, have a child before Y... And that exactly what she did.

I get that it's good to know your priorities. I just wonder if that many specific priorities are genuine or imposed by peer/society/idealization pressure.

I had the awful impression she could only be happy, by telling people (on Ted talk) how happy and perfect her life is. I hope she's still married and have fun.
