It used to be my biological clock that would haunt me with its incessant tick-tocking, until I was blessed to become a mother for the first time at the age of 35.
Now, as I look to the future, I think about other goals I've had for a long time. I'm not old enough to feel serious pressure about a "bucket list" (you know, the list of things people want to do before they die - made famous by the film starring Jack Nicholson and Morgan Freeman), but still you think about these things when you're stuck in traffic or have a rare quiet moment.
Other than the big, important things in life, like family and spiritual progression, there are things you just want to say you've done, you know? As this is a writer's group blog, one big one of course is to get that darn novel finished, and (dare to dream), published. But, I would be sufficiently happy if it just got finished to my satisfaction.
Outside of writing, I would also like to conquer some of my fears by doing something beyond my comfort zone, like skydiving or bungee jumping. Maybe when the kids are older... However, by then, it will be my bucket list.
What's on yours?
