So carrying on with my 30 day blog challenge and the next one (in case you haven't already guessed from the title) is where do you see yourself in 10 years.
I really like this question because it makes me reflect on things which have happened in the past and where I thought I would have ended up 10 years ago.
I mean 10 years ago I was 11 and wanted to be a nurse, hairdresser, rocket scientist and in my spare time; a horse trainer.
Over the years only really the horse training stuck, I was hooked on horses. I remember first seeing them on TV and thinking how powerful they were and how easily they trusted their rider, I wanted that. I wanted to put my whole faith into these huge animals. I started riding when I was 9 and I never wanted to do anything else.
I carried on my horsey dream into college where I studied 2 courses in equine management and even went on to study equine in university; it didn't work out and when I left university I spent some time in India training horses and it was amazing. But the time there was cut short and I came back and ended up gaining loads of weight which meant I couldn't ride. Instead of losing the weight I just ate more due to being fed up that I couldn't ride. It was always the plan to get back into it and do it again but I never had the motivation and so I got stuck in call centers and honestly hated it.
I tried sales and various other things but I still wanted horses in my life, I tried applying but nobody would hire me because I didn't have the experience. So I ended up back in another call center and honestly it's been the best thing for me.
I've let go of my horsey dream, this isn't how I imagined my life going but I still want horses in my life. Not as a career but I still want to own one, or a hundred.
So nowadays I'm still in the call center in car insurance (it's a freaking nightmare - parents need to chill really) but I've just been promoted into the IT department which I cannot wait for.
So when I get asked 'where do you see yourself in 10 years?' I honestly have no idea, I would like to imagine being a successful author or having a career in IT, I would be more than happy with both. The good thing is I can still do my writing and blogging while working in IT and progressing in that field so I'm not losing out on anything.
I'd also like to imagine I'd be married with kids and my own house and dogs and horses of course...let's keep that to ourselves though, I don't want to find a man shaped hole in the wall.
Life is a mystery and I didn't work hard enough for my career in equine, I won't make that mistake again.
What are your guys hopes and dreams for the next 10 years?
let me know in the comments below :D
Until next time :)
