The other day I was sitting and thinking! Thinking hard, about what my life has been like, and what our life is going to be like in the next 12 months. I have made many stupid mistakes over the years, with raising my boys, and with how we lived our life. The last three years have been a huge learning curve for me, and for our family. I am no longer the parent that I used to be. I see our life in different eyes and I know that we are Living A Different Life to what is consider normal!
Living A Different Life And I Am Proud of It!
Society expects us to live in a House that we spend over 25 years paying off.
Society expects us to send our kids to school to get a good education. Society expects us to have two cars, and the latest technology.
Well we are different! We have sold off our house, and most of our furniture. We have a shipping container of the items that our important to us, the rest was not important and was so easy to let go. The hangs up of what our life should be like, are starting to slowly flow away. Some days I still have moments where I think “Oh my what are we doing” but other days I feel like we are living a life that we were born to live.
What Would You Change In Your Life?
If you had a magic wand, and you could close your eyes, tap your feet together and create a whole new world – What Would You Change In Your Life? Are you really living or are you just breathing? Are you Living A Different Life to what you were born to live?
Can you ever remember back to when you were little, and you had a dream? A dream to live your life a certain way?
I have always wanted to have a big family. Actually I have always wanted six children – three boys and three girls. Now that I have five boys my life is different to my dream. I am not saying that I regret my life, what I am saying is that I am Living A Different Life from my dream! But at the same time I am Living A Life that is my dream. I have five amazing boys, and it took me to realise this when I had to let my oldest boy go. Not sure why/how but I still have my dream of having six children, and I know that it will be a girl! How is this possible….no idea 🙂
My other dream while I was growing up was to be rich and famous! How funny is that – considering how shy I am when I am in a room full of people. I actually go red in the face when I have to speak to a group of people, and I stumble with my words! So I guess being in the lime light as a rich and famous person will have to stay a dream. Actually I think that I can handle Living A Different Life by being rich – keep the famous out of the equation and I will be happy!
The biggest Dream I have is to travel around Australia with our boys. We are almost living on the road….my dream is about to become more real when we get ready to set off early next month!
So where is all this leading to……well what I would like to know is – if you could live any life that you wanted -without having to think about “What Ifs” What Would Your Life Be Like? Tell it from the heart – I want to hear about you Living A Different Life 🙂
