Children are born 梦想ers. As a father of two young girls, I see it every day. They let their imaginations take them to wild places:
I still remember my childhood 梦. When I was just 5, my parents took me to see Superman. After that, I wanted to do nothing but fly. 我的 mother made me a red cape which I wore around the house. I also 梦想ed of visiting the places I read about in books and saw 上 National Geographic. I 梦想t of being an astronaut and flying F16 fighter jets.
As I grew older, the 梦 evolved and became more rational. By the age of 12 or so, I thought it would be 大 to be a commercial airline pilot. As a teen, I accepted that my lack of 好 vision stifled all 梦 of flying. I let them go.
Real life has a funny way of squashing 梦. You go to school, develop a skill, get a job (not flying anything), find a mate and possibly have children. You buy a house in the suburbs and a couple cars. At work, you try to get ahead of other humans for 8 to 10 hours every day. You take a week off for vacation a couple times per year. Maybe you work harder than your co-workers, become a vice-president, buy a big house and a fast car. After 40 years, you move to a warm place to live out the rest of your days. Your body and mind will be past their prime, but hopefully in 好 enough condition so that you may enjoy your remaining time.
But what became of those 梦? The answer is simple: You let them go when you became an adult. The responsibilities and pressures of life pushed your 梦 aside.
Dare to 梦想
I’我们为金融独立制定了短期课程。我努力工作，但把钱花在了买东西上。一世’ve made errors (“您好4000平方英尺的家！”), but I’m现在站稳脚跟。一世’不到两年就可以免费使用，感觉很好。
我的 梦 are coming back. Of course, they aren’和我小时候的一样’使其不那么值得。在接下来的几年中，我和我的家人将前往美国东北部，并花费数月的时间探索缅因州的海岸，佛蒙特州的树林和华盛顿特区。再过一年，我们’ll spend the same amount of time in the Pacific Northwest. I 梦想 of reading and writing. I 梦想 of teaching my children to code.
财务独立可以减轻生活的压力和压力。我不再担心钱了。我不再对失去工作感到恶梦。我不再关心邻居是否对我少一些，因为我的汽车是2003年生产的。我’m a better person.
Best of all, I can 梦想 上 ce again.
Do you still remember the 梦 you had as a child?
