The “miracle question”

Yesterday during my therapy session, my therapist asked me what she calls the “miracle question”:

What do you see yourself doing 5 years from now?

She had me close my eyes, and picture what it would look like.

So, I ask you, my friends: What do you see yourself doing 5 years from now? Comment away…

I’ll post my response in another post. πŸ˜‰ Plus, I’ll explain why this is the “miracle question.”

  1. Oh, jeez, what I want or what I tell myself I’ll settle for? Thinking what I might *actually* be doing in 5 yrs scares me. What if I’m still sitting on this sofa?

    When do we find out why it’s a miracle? I think I need to know asap.

  2. I see myself still working at my present job, Alex will be 21 by then, possibly still living with me and maybe someone special will be in my life on a “daily” basis.
    Physically I don’t see myself changing “too much.” I’ll be 53 but still thinking I’m 35 πŸ™‚

  3. Ok, I’m closing my eyes (not probably a good thing to do at 4:15a.m. while at work)…. let’s see here. I imagine I’ll still be working full time. My oldest will be 21 (who knows, I could be a grandmother? I had my first at 21), the twins will be juniors in high school.

    I want to say I vision great things. I just kinda see much of the same, except we are all 5 years older. That’s probably not too good, huh? I know I’m suppose to envision myself the way I want to be, but it never turns out that way so … I’m guessing I’m a little down in the dumps right now ;( I’ll come back because I want to see what you’ve written!
    Have a great weekend!

  4. Ok, so as I am on positive swing, lessee…..hmmm……I will be at home, writing a story, and already have some stories published under my belt, and will be super husband/dad, and I will finally be happy and healthy.

    That would be a miracle, but, I do have faith,

  6. I’m behind on blog reading so I’m trying to read this from the bottom up…that’s not easy. It’s like trying not to flip to the last few pages of a suspenseful novel to see who lives.

    Um…Okay..5 years from now. I see bright sunshine cuz it May. I see some sadness because the next to oldest will be about to graduate and moving on with his life. But I also see great joy because of all of his accomplishments. I see myself as very short compared to my kids too cuz I’m already almost there!
