My Next Ten Years

July 25th, 2011 at 05:54 am

Yes, I turned 50 this year. I don't look my age, so I have been told. In fact, people often don't believe me. I get carded a lot.

Anyhow, started thinking about my next ten years and what it holds for me. This is what I came up with.

*I will be debt free, including my mortgage.
*I will probably become a grandma at least once, maybe twice.
*My career shift will change from a stay-at-home mom, doing different types of jobs to bring in extra income, to a more secure job, possibly 5 days a week, that would include some type of health insurance and retirement package.
*My children (16, 19 and 26) will become less dependent on me, which will free up more of my time to possibly travel with my spouse. I have a bucket list.
*My home will be completely renovated and will only require maintenance. I have been working at turning my home into a more green and self-sufficient place to live.

So, I am looking forward to the next 10 years. I believe they hold a lot of promise.

    If you are still getting carded at 50, then you are definitely doing something right! Smile I think it is great that you have these goals to lead to a successful coming decade. I think that a lot of people in your situation should be looking for positions that will provide health insurance and additional retirement. You are certainly wise, and I like your planning.
