Some may say that constantly dreaming about what’s next means that I am not grateful for what I have or that nothing will ever be good enough. Well…I disagree. I don’t think that having a vision for what you want your life to be is a bad thing. It should be what drives you to do what you do everyday through the good and the bad. Our chances of ever moving back to the easy coast are slim now that we don’t pay income tax here and Val is happy with his job. One of the things that I like to do is drive through the neighborhood here in Texas where we want to build our dream home. One with a beautiful view…I can’t have the lake or water since there really isn’t any water here in Austin but a hillside view will do. A house with a gym, my own office, enough space for our family to visit and the kids to play. A large backyard with a pool and a landscape like this. Today I got out and stood on the property that I would love to call ours. I would even say that it will be mine but I know that by the time we are ready…it will be scooped up. There are so many just like it.
Some call it day dreaming but I call it having a vision and feeling it. Believing that you have already made it happen. I set a goal of paying off our mortgage by the end of next year and then saving enough by the end of the 3rd/4th year to pay for the entire 20% down payment of our dream home in cash. I feel it…it has already happened in my mind.
What’s your vision??
