I have always been reluctant to get caught up in posts and projects that ask questions such as this, but I am learning that it can actually be a good idea and very helpful for goal setting.
In ten years time I will be coming on for 55 years old. That seems like a scary prospect, a whole other decade older, a new age group, a new era in my life. It has to be said that I didn’t think I would spend my thirties caring for my sick husband and getting sick myself, nor did I think that by the time I hit my mid-forties I would be looking at turning my employment prospects round for the better.
Being unable to work in the traditional sense has meant that I have not been able to work since I left my job to care for my husband in 2002. I always wanted to be a writer, even before I had a computer, but it was something I just never got around to doing. Once I did get a computer I started writing and only stopped when my husband got sick. I started up again a couple of years ago – although I have blogged since around 2006. A change in my circumstances recently has allowed me to start a business and branch out with my writing.
So, where do I want to be in 10 years?
I want to be successful in all of my endeavors and living life to the fullest, surrounded by my family and friends. I have learnt the hard way that life is short and precious and we must make the most of the time we are given with those we love.
