Where Do You Want To Be In 5 Years?

Happy Sunday,  I have been the laziest of lazies today.  I think we all need a day like that sometimes. And at the time I am being my laziest I think, oh how delicious is this?  And then a couple of hours go by with not getting anything done and tomorrow is Monday and I have to go back to work, blah, blah, blah.   But you know, like I said sometimes lazy just feels too good to be anything else, ha ha.

 I took this picture several years ago at the Missouri Botanical Gardens.  I love the Chihuly exhibits they are so beautiful.  This was almost 5 years ago and it seems like yesterday!!!


So today my blog topic for day 15, of the 30 day blog challenge,  is where I want to be in 5 years.  Do you think long term like that after you get to a certain age?  Do you know where you want to be in 5 years other than alive and healthy.  Here is what I think for myself:

I hope to still be working at my job at the same capacity I am now.  People, 5 years will fly by faster than a Romulan Warbird.  Sorry my Trekkie came out in me.  Now 10 years might be a different story but I will have to see about that after 5 years goes by.  I am not saying I am not preparing for my future with a retirement plan and savings and such.  I am just saying at what point will I want to dip into that.  I have more than 12 years before I can draw full benefits from Social Security.  If there still is Social Security at that time.

If something should happen to my job within 5 years or God forbid illness prevents me from working then I will regroup and look at it. So as far as a job goes in 5 years that is where I want to be.  Now here are a few other things I hope to be doing in 5 years.

I would like to write a lot more than I do now.  I would like to freelance and maybe even have a group of writers to work with me.  I would like to publish a book or two or maybe more.  I have a Children’s book in the works. I hope to have that published soon.  I have a few ideas for other books.   I would like to be in better shape, physically, be stronger.  I would love to be able to make money creatively.  I love to make lotion bars and bake and knit and do lots of things like that.  I would like to take that to another level, whatever that may be.  I would like to be able to volunteer more for a good cause.  I visit my mother in law at the Assisted Living Center a few days a week and I see people who never have any visitors.  They go weeks, months or forever without anyone coming to visit and talk to them and just spend some time with them.  I would really like to make this something that I do on a regular basis.  My husband and I want to travel to several countries that we haven’t visited.  We also want to travel to parts of the United States that we haven’t been. I WANT TO HAVE FUN!!!! I love learning new things.  I think the more you learn, at whatever age, your brain will have to stay active.

So that is a few things for me and gives you an idea about what I would like for myself. Now, how about you?  Where would you like to be in 5 years?  Anything different from what you are doing now? Nothing is too big or too small if that’s what you want.

Always remember,

Love your day your way!!!
