Day 19. Where I’d like to be in 10 years

Day 19 of my 30 day challenge is to write about where I’d like to be in 10 years. 10 years from now I’ll be in my 37th year. Wow. Thirty seven. Well let me start off by saying that I learned long ago that I should not make time lines for myself. 10 years ago if you asked me where I’d be in 10 years, I promise you it would be no description of what and where I am now. I do not say that in a negative way; I am so lucky and fortunate to have been blessed to be here and also have had a great life thus far. I did however think that I’d have more of myself/life together. I thought I’d have a serious relationship and know exactly where my life was headed. Those things, I do not have. Infact, I probably had more of that when I was 17 hahaha. So to think out loud over where I’d like to be in ten years scares me a little lol. I think I’d like to have a family. A nice, funny husband and a couple of children that adore me as much as I do them. I would love to excel in whatever it is that I am doing at that time. I’d like to have the most wonderful memories of the parts of the world I plan to see by then. I wish for my friends to have all that they’ve dreamed of so that I can celebrate in their happiest moments. I’d love for my parents to be healthy to be there with me for all of this. I’d love to be comfortable within myself: my home, my career, my family, my mind & body. I don’t know where I’ll exactly be but I hope that wherever I am, it’s progress towards something I’ve earned filled with peace and love (hahaha so basically I want to be a hippie in ten years).

  1. I’m 24 now and just like yourself, looking back I just knew that I would be much farther along in life than I am right now. I knew I would be finished will school and settling into a job that doesn’t justify the $20,000 in school loans. I was wrong and I am still in school. However, I’m thankful for where I am now and really, I wouldn’t want it any other way.

  2. I’ll be 35 *scared face! But I can’t wait… this thing called life needs to happen – in all the most beautiful (and tragic) ways possible.
