This morning I conducted a financial inventory and a 6 month vision based on current income and budgets. Making a move to a new location that is over 3000 miles away takes planning and strategy, but the first step is making sure that funding for this type of move is adequate. As long as our income remains the same and we continue to live as frugally as we have been I see the move being a great success.
As our lives are pretty simple right now I see that simplicity in Florida multiplied as we will have reduced our stuff even more than we have done in the past. Moving into a rental for a year and finding the perfect property to call home base is the plan for next year. With continued savings we will be very close to purchasing that home with cash, but even if we don’t we will be so much closer to paying off a mortgage than we are right now.
So each day passes slowly as we plot and calculate every penny towards our mission. We are continuing to work towards a dream of freedom. The dream of one day being completely debt free. The sacrifices we make today will pay off big time in just a few years from now and I can see it as clear as day. I see a RoadTrek class B RV sitting in our yard and us planning camping trips to destinations we have been anticipating visiting. I see us cutting back on our work schedules to maybe just 3 days per week with other days just sitting on the beach. And this is the true nature of making dreams become reality. All of those smaller dreams and visions of getting things accomplished like simply paying off a credit card are built around the same principles of making bigger dreams come true. We had the vision of living in the Pacific Northwest and with years of planning we turned that into reality and have absorbed all of the nature and beauty of this region of the country.
It all starts with a vision, a dream of finding the passion to get the ball rolling. This is the push it takes to start making all of the changes it takes to make that dream come true. And it really is all about passion. Even when a small small dream is met with passion and desire we soon learn that all of our energy and focus is soon directed at that dream and we will find a way to accomplish it.
Do you have dreams and visions that have yet to come alive? Or are currently working towards a vision you see? Even in hard times we must learn that if we simply stay the course and Keep on Keeping because it is possible to see our dreams come true.
