Now Is The Time To Pursue Your Goals And Dreams

by Pam on April 14, 2010

“You’ll never be as young as you are right now.” These are wise words that my friend used to encourage my husband and I when we were telling her about our dreams of doing some extensive traveling.  As a couple we have always wanted to see more of the world and we like learning about new cultures and ways of life.  Unfortunately we also know that traveling can cost a lot of money, even though we are able to travel on an extremely tight budget.

That being said, my friend is right.  We certainly aren’t getting any younger.  Her statement goes for the pursuit of any goal or dream.  The time to start working towards your goals and dreams is right now.  We don’t know what will happen in the future, but we can make an effort to ensure our passions are not left on the sidelines.  If we are going to do some traveling, it does make the most sense for us to do it now, before we have kids and before we get too comfortable and let the golden handcuffs chain us to our jobs.  Right now we are considering our options and we are on the brink of making some life-altering decisions.

If you are making some big decisions in your life now, or you also feel like you are at a crossroads, whether it is regarding your finances or some other aspect of your life, keep in mind that right now you are as young as you’re ever going to be.  Take advantage of the time you have now and make sure that you are living your life to its fullest potential.

I’ll keep you posted as to what we decide to do.  In the meantime, we will continue to save as much money as we can and to find creative ways to earn extra income on the side in order to make it easier on the pocketbook should we decide to pack up our bags and take on the world.
