Ninja @ Punch Debt in the Face wrote himself a letter to be read in ten years. At his suggestion (and because it is a great idea) many other bloggers have posted a letter to their future self and here is mine.
Are you totally gray now? How many laugh lines have you earned?
Now that the serious stuff is out of the way, here’s where I wanted to be in 2020.
Mr. Boomer and you are getting ready to celebrate your silver anniversary. Hopefully, this special occasion is being celebrated with a rave party and maybe a special trip.
Is youngest son married and a father? I sure hope so because two more grandchildren to love would sure be great!
The grandchildren of 2010 will be ages 10 and 14. Does Alex play any sports? Give him a hug and kiss for me. Have you been to Japan to visit Lana (once or more)?
Do you still vacation with your sisters and brother? They’re the only people in the world with the same parents and childhood experiences. Treasure time with them. How are Mom and Dad? I know you’re visiting several times a year.
You retired last year from full-time employment. Are you working as a consultant or with your own business? I’m not against working after retirement, just want to be able to do it on my own terms.
Now that you’re retired what’s the name of Bucksome Boomer? The blog was started back in 2009 to keep you motivated and accountable. If you’re retired and comfortably so, it worked!
Remember that life list you wrote in 2010? Hopefully you have been able to check off at least a few items. How was Italy?
The plan was to move somewhere near warm water in retirement. Did you end up in Florida? As long as you don’t go to the beach in full clothing, you’re not too old.
I hope the last ten years has been good to you and your loved ones. If you haven’t done the things above, kick yourself in the behind and get going. It’s not to late to shape your future.
