I have always come across that question during job interviews, and up until now, I still couldn't really picture myself 10years from now. Given that I'm not really interviewed, I don't think I'd be telling lies to myself saying 'I'll be working for this company still and would be helping this company become one of the best in it's field' yeah right! I think I'd be saying: "I'd be married, hopefully with a good husband and a kid. I won't be working as an employee anymore, I'd be managing our family business". Well, that's a good one, but still I have no idea what I would become in 10years. Do you have an idea or a rough estimate of what would happen to you in 10years? How do you see yourself in 10years??

Hello laydee. To see myself in ten years is not that easy because I have no exact idea what life and work will be with everything getting changed every so often. Right now my greatest wish is to have always a stable job in my town with a good salary to support my family. But there is one thing that I can be certain, that is, I have to keep healthy and energetic so that I can work well.

True, regardless the plans, if your body can't keep up, you can never reach those plans.

Like you, I still don't know. But if GOD permits, I would love to have my own family and to have a business of our own and live a content, happy and peaceful life...

When I was still single I see myself in 10 years with a nice and stable job. A good family with my own house and lot, driving a car and have all the good things in life. But after I got married my vision about myself in 10 years changed. Now I am confused and I couldn't picture myself anymore in the coming years. Maybe my mind and emotions got affected with all the problems and trials I have gone through and sad to know that here I am now still lost and confused about so many things. I don't know what will happen to me now.

Well.....I am hopeful and hopeless at the same time :D I want to see myself happily married, raising my children and spending a content life with my husband but on the other side sometimes I see myself alone, pretending to be happy in front of everyone but very lonely and torn from the inside... Allah knows the best and I rest my decisions on His will.

Well I hope to be married with children and living in a house instead of an apartment. I don't see my self at my current job in 10 years. Hopefull I will be at a small-mid size law firm with my own office working ONLY as a paralegal. Not as a sectary, office manager and some-times paralegal as I am now.
