What I would love to do, more than anything else, is get to the point where I’m no longer living paycheck to paycheck. I know that’s selfish and shallow, but that’s really high on my list.
My dad worked his tail off to become successful during the 80s, and he furthered his knowledge to continue being successful throughout the 90s and 00s. He doesn’t have to work, but he chooses to. He’s not a millionaire by any means, but he’s never looking over his shoulder wondering where his next meal is going to come from.
I want that.
I don’t need to be a millionaire. I don’t even need to be a thousandaire. I’d just like to be able to come home and take Sunshine out on a date without planning my finances in advance. I’d like to be able to buy a game or a movie for the kids on a day outside of Christmas or their birthday. I’d like to be able to buy clothes at places other than the local second-hand store.
I’d like to think that I won’t be living like this forever, but I turn 40 this year and it’s so difficult to know where life is going to take me over the second half of my life.
Hopefully, with knowledge and experience on my side, this will happen in my lifetime.
