10 years from now...

(This is Day 3 of Fitness Cheerleader's blogging challenge.)

So much of the time, I'm so busy just surviving the week or the day that I don't have time to think about next week or next month, much less next year or 10 years from now.

To think that far, I'll have to put it in perspective. My daughter will be 17 and entering her senior year of high school. My son will be 15 and a sophomore. I'm sure our days will be spent watching them involved in whatever sports or activities they've chosen. I'll be 43 and my husband and I will have been married 20 years. I'll have been teaching 20 years as well, still a ways from retiring.

So where do I see me in all this?

I hope I'm a supportive mom that has encouraged my kids to be just who they are meant to be. I hope I will have instilled strong values in them to be kind, compassionate, independent, and Godly.

I hope I'm still active and running. I hope I'll be able to say I've completed a full marathon and ridden with my husband in many more bike races. I hope I will have inspired others to be active and healthy.

More than that, I hope I'll be confident in who I am, self-assured and someone others can lean on. I hope I will be surrounded by good friends and my loving family. I hope to be a better me than I am now...stronger emotionally and physically, well-balanced, fun-loving, and happy.

  1. I think you're well on your way towards those great goals!

  2. Awesome! It got me thinking about where I'll be in 10 years- a lot the same: 1 in HS, 1 in college, 20 years married, 22 years teaching, but a bit older- 51! And hoping I'm still running and not as frequently injured as I have been this past year!!
