What's Next?

The other day I was in the place where my deepest thinking occurs (in the shower) and was reviewing all of my accomplishments so far in my life. I've traveled, studied, got married, working on my own family, have a decent job, have a great relationship with my extended family and just feel good at where I'm at being 29 years old.

My very next thought was what will the next 10 years bring? What will I hope to accomplish or what will I like to experience in my 30's?

I tried to come up with a top 10 list of goals/hopes for my next decade, but I couldn't really come up with a complete list. I was wondering, is it because I've done and seen so much I don't need to see or do a list of things to be happy? Maybe I've been there, done that and now I am just waiting to see what the moments life present rather then yearning to do something. Maybe I'm just that content with my life? That's good right?!

I'll start a list for now. I have a little over 5 months until I hit the big 3-0 and maybe I'll come up with a complete list. Until then, here are my goals, potential accomplishments or just something to think about doing when I'm in my thirty's.
  1. Pay off my debt
  2. Go on a cruise (maybe around Ireland or Europe)
  3. Raise a wonderful little boy
  4. Continue having a wonderful marriage
  5. Hit the lottery (you never know)

It sounds like you are really content with you life and that is really admirable. I have quite the list of things to accomplish in my 20s (just over 4 years left eek!) and I know there is no way I will actually get through them all. Your list, with the exception of the lottery ;) sounds completely do-able. Can you imagine your life 10 years from now with a 10 year old boy and a GROWN step-son? I was laying in bed last night thinking about how old all the kids will be when Im 30 and that just blows my mind! Good luck with your list!
