Day7, 5 year goals, 30 day blog challenge.
So this has made me think, think about what I want for myself, my work and my relationship.
So in 5 years I want to achieve…
1 get married. I know you already know I am achieving this goal this year but it still a big one for me!
I love Gavin I want to be his wife. I can’t wait for our wedding day. Hopefully it doesn’t rain but if it does we will have to go out and buy wellies and umbrellas!
For my home
2, get a new kitchen. Can that be a goal, yes well we will have to save for it so it isn’t something we can just splurge on willy nilly. It will take time to plan and find the right bits.
Our kitchen is nice it’s just tired. The bottom of the cabinet have spit due to water issues and I really really want a dishwasher!
I also would like a cabinet next to the sink and maybe french doors that go out into the garden but we will see.
I would also love a little toilet and sink upstairs but Gavin is really against that for some unknown reason.
There a few bits around the house that are tired and need a bit of TLC and after the wedding is a good time to focus more.
3 my blog being successful
I am so greatful for every single follower it means the world to me that for some reason you would read my blog. Gav gets an update with each one I get, and I punch the sky, John Bender style.
I would love it to be even better where I can have a proper website not just a page. I would like it to reflect me a lot more. My friend is a super talented graphic designer and after all the wedding craziness is over I will be looking to her for advice.
If it was a success I could spend a lot more time on the photography. Carefully planning layouts rather than the snaps you get right now.
Japan is on my bucket list along with Vietnam, Laos and Singapore. I would like to have visited all of these countries in the next few years. We are honeymooning in Japan and plan to stop of on the way at another destination. So that will be two ticked off my list.
I have a fair few countries in Europe I really want to go to. I have never been to Italy, there is so much I would love to explore there. I feel like Italy’s city’s deserve destinations of there very own! I have also never been to Ireland and need to visit as we have ancestors there.
Iceland, Norway and Sweden are places of such beauty that are not far away but expensive to visit so this will definitely be a highly planned exciting schedule.
So travel is a big one!
5 Working less and earning more
Is that possible? I meaning working 4 days a week instead of 6. Maybe doing my dream job/ jobs…..
I wouldn’t mind working from home once a week so I could look after my dog. Currently I work 5/6 days a week. But I set the Rita so at least I decide when I work even if it is 6 days straight. I don’t mind but it can be draining.
Perhaps in5 years I will achieve my dream job and be a blogger full time. Travelling the planet, renovating my perfect little house and writing full time.
I always struggle to think of answers to these questions but so far this challenge has been more about a challenge for me to understand what I want rather than a challenge of writing a blog everyday!
I am really enjoying this!
