Flying back home from Los Angeles to New Jersey I flew over my rental property in La Quinta, CA and looked wistfully at what will be. Below me was a future that the present is making possible. My present job, my present saving, my present investing is all designed to get me there sooner rather than later.
“There” is more than a place, La Quinta, it is a lifestyle, an active lifestyle of hiking and biking, of exploration and discovery. “There” is a place to meet new people and sit around a fireplace talking and sharing. “There” is a place to be awed by nature, to wake up each morning with scenery out of the most beautiful art you can find.
The first leg of the flight, right after takeoff, took us over the ocean, another place I look forward to spending lots of time. The ocean reminds me of the concept I write about in What Next, the concept of the lack of barriers.
Barriers make us feel hemmed in like a car on a road. On the ocean a boat has complete freedom to move in any direction the captain wishes. That kind of freedom is what many people search for all their lives, what I am working toward right now.
I’m on my way home to continue the work of creating a future I dream of while living a life I love.
What is your ideal future, and what are you doing now to make it a reality?
