If Money were no object

Today let’s talk about what you would do if the above was true. If money was not an issue, how would your life be different? What kind of things might you do that you don’t do now? Would your life change?

If money was not an issue, how would your family life be different?

Each of us has dreams for our family. It doesn’t matter if you are a family of 2, a single parent with kids, or a family with lots of children. We all have dreams, often created years ago when we were children ourselves. What about how you spend your time? Would that change? We have a specific idea of what we’d like to see in a house, a car, what kind of things we want to be able to provide for our families, etc. Have you reached that? If not, how would it be different if money were not an issue?

If money was not an issue, what would you do for fun?

Now, let’s do some even better dreaming. Sometimes life does need to be about having fun and enjoying yourself! If money wasn’t an issue for you, what would you do for fun? For me, I would spend six months of the year in Barbados! It is where my husband is from and we love going back for visits. It always seems the visits are entirely too short. I would spend more time walking on sandy beaches and watching sunsets from the beach. I would read more books. I would do more writing. All of those are things I enjoy and that bring happiness to me. What about you?

If money was not an issue, how would you help people?

This is perhaps one of my favorite questions to think about. A big hairy audacious goal (B-HAG) of mine is to some day create a foundation that works with our military spouses to provide support when their spouse is deployed. It’s on my heart and something I will one day be able to do to help others. Another thing I would put on that list is being able to work with rescue shelters for dogs. My fur baby is a rescue animal and was in foster care before he came to live with me. I would love to be able to help others connect with their forever dog and connect those dogs to their forever home. How about you? How would YOU help people if money were not an issue?

Whose dream are you building?

There’s a saying that you are either building your own dream or helping someone else build theirs. I don’t know about you, but I much prefer to build my own dream. I spent years in the corporate world building dreams for someone else, and it’s simply my time now.

I want to invite you to take a look at a short video. It won’t take much of your time and could give you some great ideas on how to get to the point where you are able to do those things above that you thought about as you read this. I would love to hear what you think after you’ve watched it!
