30 Day Blogging Challenge – Day 15

Where will you be in 5 years?

Wow.  This is by far (seriously) the toughest one I’ve come across in this challenge.  There is where I hope to be, and then there is the realistic where I will be.  And what do they mean by “where”.  existentially? Physically? Spiritually?  Emotionally?  Ugh!  The pressure.

My hope is that in 5 years I will be in a position where I don’t have to leave the house after 10pm to go to work.  Don’t get me wrong – I love my job.  And I know that I’m good at what I do BUT…   crawling down the back side of 50 tends to put a damper on my enthusiasm for responding to that midnight phone call to stand on the breakwater in the ice cold, or crawl down a 30% slope into the bush on a rainy night.  Physically I’m coming to the realization that the spirit is willing but the body – she says “are you kidding me?”

On the rest of it – I guess I have to get my butt in gear and work on the ‘other plan’.  I’d love to be able to make enough money writing.  And that’s all I’m going to say.
