“The future belongs to those who believe in the beauty of their dreams.”
~ Eleanor Roosevelt
What does your happily ever after look like?
The older I get the less attractive the traditional white picket fence scenario looks.
It’s a beautiful house, but I don’t want to be the one responsible for its upkeep and occupants.
Maybe it’s because I know the sacrifices that come with raising a family.
Or maybe I just have a deep, abiding love for alone time.
But the thought of getting married, making a home, and popping out 2.5 kids doesn’t make my heart race. (sorry Mom)
Falling in love and making a commitment to someone makes my heart race – but that could just be palpitations from a panic attack.
The thought of seeing the world; immersing myself in new and different cultures, traipsing through third world countries and having adventures with my partner in crime – now that definitely gets me going.
I’ve realized, I’m okay, not having the corner office, driving the shiny new car, buying stuff and things.
I’d rather fill my life with experiences than possessions.
And I’m actually pretty good at being poor – guess it helps to be frugal – thanks Mom 🙂
I think it’s time we all start giving ourselves permission, to openly and honestly, want what we truly want.
Say it out loud and start making it happen!
I want to quit my job(s), find work as a freelance writer, and travel.
Anyone out there have any helpful hints on making that dream come true??
What would you do if money was not a factor?
Do you even know??
