Visualize your life 10 years from now

Friday, May 03, 2013

Todays Spark Coach was about visualizing yourself 10 years from now. One of the first things said was that 10 years will go by so quickly, how true that is. I want to retire at the age of 59-1/2. I am turning 57 this year. My mother is 83 and she says to work until I am 62, "that is only 5 more years". Everyone is saying how quickly time goes by and they are right. The older you get, the faster time goes by.
At the age of 67, I want to be healthy. I want to be able to take long walks. I want to be able to travel, to play with my grandchildren. My mother has emphysema and is a diabetic. She is extremely overweight and can barely walk from one end of her home to the other. She smoked for 50 years. She quit at the age of 70. I try to remember what she was like at 67. I don't want to be like that.

    Wanda,
I know you will do exactly what you want to do when you are 67! You have the desire, the drive, the determination, the motivation, and the discipline! There is no question in my mind that you will succeed! emoticon

    I retired at age 56 from corporate America and now I babysit my grandsons. It's the hardest and most rewarding job I have ever had. I'm hoping that in 10 years that I will be reaping the rewards of my hard work.

  I retired last year but then went back to work part time. I am 61 and in 10 years I want to be able to walk long distances (without any knee replacement surgery) so I need to keep moving and eating as healthfully as possible. Thanks for posting this great way of planning ahead - to keep the future in mind while doing what needs to be done today!
