In Ten Years

14 years

Inspired by Tess (after she also poked me) and Georgina for similar entries they made about what I hope life will be like for myself in ten years time. :3

In ten years time I will be 33 years old. I hope by that age I have been able to learn more about life, while being able to keep a childish spirit to always keep me young at heart and maintain a youthful essence of freedom. It would be my greatest wish that I am content with life, happy and looking forward to all that is to come.

I hope to be doing what I love, and doing it well. To have written and published many children’s books and at least three novels. To have continued my art in creative endeavours, flourished in web design and kept myself frequent in all the new dimensions of design that are to come and to run a small business selling and making what I love. I hope I have been able to expand my mind and studied in what has greatly appealed to me at each turning point in my life.

Family should always mean the world to me, and I hope that I have found people that I have connected with very strongly and met again all the wonderful people that mean so much to me now, and made sure to never loose touch. I would love to have a child, and if by the age of 33 I am ready for that, I hope that I am completely overwhelmed with all the love and joy for that special little girl or boy.

I want to be secure in life, to know that financially I am stable and I can support myself and my family. While I do not strive for fame, I hope that by doing what I love I can be able to have a solid income and leave something for the world to enjoy through my writing, art and imagination.

Most importantly through all that will come to pass in the next ten years I hope that I will always be true to myself, and never loose my quirky sense of being and ability to see life as strange and complicated as it can be. To wear pyjamas at all hours during the day, having piercing and tattoos and know who I am.

  1. The most important thing is believing in yourself and knowing who you are. 🙂 I’m one of those people who can just spend all day in her jammies. 8D Minus the days I have uni or work, obviously… 😀

    I think having a child is such a lovely way of sharing the love that you have. It’s just always felt like a beautiful thing, the idea of being a mother and being ready to bring up a little one. I know I’ve always sort of been annoyed by kids, but I know there’ll be a day when I want to bring one up. (I’d actually like one boy and one girl. ;D)

    I doubt your creativity will EVER go away, Kya. ;D The short time I’ve known you, you’ve always come up with newer, brighter and more exciting ideas. It’s endless. And I’m very sure that in the future the children’s bookstores will be full of your illustrated books. We can always live the dreams we have if we keep on dreaming. <3

    The mention of fame reminded me of when I wanted to be famous when I was younger. It's definitely not on the top of my list now. 😛 8D

  2. Beautiful post. Being financially stable is important to me too. But I don’t want it to be so, with the expense of my happiness. So I hope I will find a good balance between work and free-time/traveling/hobbies.

  3. I would love to see a child raise by you! And I would love to have our children get to see each other! This is such a good post. I believe it’s a good idea to envision how you want your future to be.

    I hope you reach all of your goals!

    By the way, I love this layout.. The Giraffe on the bottom gave me fright though at first! Haha.. I said gave me a fright because it reminds me of something you would say.

    Anyway, I miss you dearly.. I was looking through our old letters the other day!

    Talk to you soon!

  4. Yay for authors!! I hope that you are indeed successful and are able to write amazing novels that are sold world wide. ^^

    Love your layout, by the way!

  5. I want to get tattooed as well, and it’s weird that that’s one of the things I picked out of that, huh? I have an idea for a few tattoos I’d get too– after reading this I also want to do this kind of post, and might do so in the next few days. 🙂

    That being said, being loved is a basic need for everyone, and I think that… being who you are, Miss Kya, you will always be loved, if only at a distance by the people you’ve enhanced online, non?

  6. My mum says that every person in their 30’s wish they had the knowledge they have now when they were 20. I bet I would wish that to.

    I hope to have a novel published by the time I am 25. That would be perfect. 🙂

    I’m not sure if I want to have a child. I do but Im 22 now and it’s like I am still 16 without going to school. It will be a while before I actually (have a life). And you need a life before you make another life.

    Just believe in your self and know your self. Every thing will come into one piece then. And I hope you have a novel or two published in the future. 🙂

  7. You forgot to add somewhere in there “I will have known Tess for thirteen magnificent years”, or even “Tess is the best person ever”. Just saaaaayin’. 😀

    No, really – I know where you’ll be in ten years. I have never been dubious of my knowledge that you are an absolute star – fame or no fame aside – and I have every belief you’ll the fun loving spirit you are now, and that you will accomplish all these things. You’re just awesome like that!
