While we all have a mental image of what that is for each one of us, for me it’s more about freedom.
Your probably asking yourself, ” Freedom….what does she mean?”
As someone living in America in the 21st century I probably have more freedom than a lot of folks around the world. Yes it’s true I am fortunate to be able to work, live, eat, vacation, drive, shop, etc… whenever and wherever I choose. And it’s great! But that is not what I mean. No, to me “Living the Dream” is more about Time Freedom.
The time to do the things I’m passionate and interested in. The time to pursue new interests while still living fairly well. I’m not drinking my coffee with my pinkie sticking up nor do I drive the latest and greatest car, but what I do have is a relatively easy going lifestyle. Sure, I’d like to get a new car every two years, but the car I have now works great. It’s a trooper and still going strong. Now why would I get rid of something that has given me faithful service all these years? As a matter of fact I’m about to hand over the keys to my son.
But, I digress. To me living the dream involves several things.
