Where Would You Be?
If you could look ahead 10 years in your future, what would you like to see? Where would you be? Would you like for your life to be totally different? Or would you like it to be just the way it is no, save for a few years adjustments?
Where Would You Be – Martina McBride
When I first read the question prompt for today, I instantly thought of “Where Would You Be,” by Martina McBride. I would love for my husband and I to both be able to work solely from home. I don’t want to be retired at that age, but I would like for us both to have jobs that are mobile and have the option to work fewer hours should we so choose. I will be in my late 40s and it would be awesome if we could both have a lot more time with each other. We have devoted so much time to work. I would love to make up for some of that time away.
Who knows, we might kill each other in semi-retirement and when we have an empty nest! But we might find it utterly relaxing and really like each other. My ultimate goal in life would be for us to be able to be snowbirds at the beach during the winter and still live at our home the rest of the year. I would also love to eventually own an RV and actually have the time to be able to travel in it. My husband and I do not currently get to take many vacations together, so taking an extended one with no hardcore itinerary to follow and a clock to constantly watch sounds like tons of fun.
I would also like to be able to say that my daughter is happy in whatever she is doing – whether that be college, marriage, raising kids, whatever. I hope that we have raised her well enough that leaving home will not be too hard for her. I hope that we have adapted her as well as we can to whatever life will be like for her on her own so that she does not have too much trouble. And I hope that we are close enough that she does miss us at least a little. We don’t want leaving to be TOO easy.
