Where do you see yourself in 5 years time?

I’ve been asked this question so many times throughout my life and the answer was always the same, I don’t know. Over time the answer changed a little to ‘living by a beach somewhere’ but that’s still pretty vague, I mean somewhere could be anywhere!

3 months ago, at my lowest point, I couldn’t see beyond each day let alone 5 years down the line. That’s not to say I wanted to do anything stupid, I just couldn’t see beyond the day I was struggling to get through. I knew somehow I needed to work through this phase in my life but I didn’t know how, I didn’t know how to get past the barely surviving stage and hit the heading towards the future stage. I just couldn’t see beyond the dark hole I had unintentionally put myself in.

My first step was to reach out. I set up a new facebook profile to reconnect with old friends who I knew could help me through this phase in my life. Through doing that I ‘met’ the lovely Vicky Lienna and quite frankly, she has helped me transform my life massively.

Vicky is one of the most amazing women I have ever had the pleasure of ‘meeting’ she has faced so many battles and demons in her life but has used these negative experiences to do something massively positive with her life and help other people. It’s hard to not be inspired by her.

Vicky made me realise that in order to fully realise my dream and my purpose in life I needed to really work out who I am and to do that I needed to embark on a journey of self discovery. I needed to evaluate what was really important to me, what I enjoyed in life and what motivates me (if you want to check her out, like here)

With Vicky’s help I was able to learn the right techniques to really think about what I want to do with my life, I was able to go more in depth with my goals and actually start to visualise my life in 5 years time. Not only that, by going more in depth and properly setting goals I was able to create a plan that will allow me to achieve my goals because a goal without a plan is just a dream.

So where do I see myself in 5 years time?

In 5 years time I will be living in Devon in a bungalow by the beach, running a successful photography business and coaching business.

I’ll get to watch the sun go down through the large glass doors that lead on to our back lawn, camera in hand ready to take that perfect shot.

Attached to the bungalow is my own studio with a fantastic space for photography and a calming and relaxing space for coaching.

I will be living the life I have always dreamed of; I will be happy, confident knowing I have found my purpose in life and financially free allowing me to make the most of every moment with my family. Totally living my best life and being the best version of me.

So where will you be in 5 years time?

  1. I love where you see yourself!
    In 5 years, I see myself in a cabin in the wilderness, with a veggie garden, a well, and solar. I will be writing full-time, basking in the lake, and going on adventures with my husband and my dogs,

    1. Thank you Jael! I think it’s so important to have a vision. A cabin in the wilderness sounds great, especially for writing inspiration!!
