So yesterday’s post was tough, but today I’m looking forward to the future. We have so many dreams and ideas and thoughts about what’s going to happen in our lives. We asked ourselves if we could craft our lives, what would it look like? In answering that question we created some loose parameters to help point us to our future…
- Family Time
This past year has opened our eyes to how little time we spent with our kids. Correction – time spent WELL with our kids. Doing things we all enjoy doing – like biking, hiking, going to the beach and such. This time has to be prioritized moving forward as we can see how much our kids need us.
- Passive Income
Once an entrepreneur, always an entrepreneur, is how I feel. Beyond developing multiple income streams, which we currently have, I’ve realised the need for passive income… income that continues to come in from a product or service that doesn’t need my attention at that moment.
We can’t be tied down to our jobs. We need to be able to take a break, or even a vacation, if necessary. We need to be able to travel, move around, and still make money. We need to have systems and people in place that run our businesses without us having to be there 24/7.
I can say with all my heart that we are both in the worst shape we have ever been in our lives. The lack of time, organization, and energy to make most of our meals is a large part of it. We also don’t prioritize time to be active. These both need to change.
This list helps me focus on what needs to happen and each decision moving forward needs to be able to compromise with our true needs. The best is yet to come, truly!
