Week #6 | Ten years from now…

Part of the 52 Week Blog Challenge

10 years from now, hmm? It’s like the interview question from Hell.

im-oldTelling the future has never been my strong suit; the most I can do is accurately predict (100% success rate – so far) what sex an unborn child will be. And even that I think is more luck than intuition, as I struggle to know what I want for lunch most days.

So, it comes down to where I want to be in 10 years’ time, and where I’m likely to be. Sadly they look a bit different!

Where I’m likely to be:

38 years old.. Good gravy. im-old
Married, with two children. married-with-children-2
In the same marketing job, but hopefully higher up the ladder. climbing-the-ladder
Having grown a little rounder about the middle. getinmybelly
Saving up desperately for holidays so I can see the world before I die. savings-jar-1
 Still struggling to get my first book published. writing-bad


Where I’d like to be:

  • 38 years old. Good gravy.
  • Happily married, with three healthy bookworms for children.
  • Owning a cockador called Fitz.
  • With three published books under my belt and more on the way.
  • Approaching the possibility of retiring from my marketing job and writing full time.
  • Having travelled to at least 3 of the countries on my ‘To Do’ list [see post]
  • Having completed the 9 Great Walks of New Zealand.


Isn’t the ‘likely’ list depressing? I’d much rather work towards the latter. I have dreams and ambition, after all. Let’s aim high! Ten years from now, I’ll write a post (if WordPress still exists and the world is still spinning) and see how I did. Cross your fingers for me. Cross your paws for Fitz.


Where do you see yourself in 10 years?

Go on, let me know what you think!
