My name is Sharon and I have a Zillow obsession. Yup, you heard it here first folks. Despite the fact that my family and I are quite settled in our home, in our dream neighborhood, I Zillow like it’s my job. I was reflecting on my Zillow obsession the other day and thought it would be fun to think about your dream life vision like a Zillow search. What is your dream life vision? Not sure yet? No problem, mama, let’s do some brainstorming together. Here we go!
Think of today’s episode like a Choose Your Own Adventure: Dream Life edition. Together, we will walk through three Dream Life options as if they were houses on Zillow. Think about which one resonates most with you. Take a moment to step out of your current life and look at them objectively. Which one would you pick? Just like a new mansion on Zillow, it can be fun to look around and fantasize a little bit.
First up is Dream Life, Option 1. In this dream life, you:
Sit back and take a look at that dream life vision. How does it feel to you? What is missing? What feels right? Just like no home is going to 100% be perfect, a dream life vision has to be tweaked. So take what you want, leave the rest! Let’s look at a second option now.
In the second dream life vision, you:
Wow, this dream life vision is basically the opposite of the first option we looked at. Again, there is no right or wrong, it’s all about fit. How does this dream life vision feel for you? Too much family time? Too little control over your finances? There were definitely seasons of life where this was my dream life vision (and occasionally, still is!). Let’s try on the last one for size.
The last option that we’re going to explore today is the dream life where you:
Now you’ll notice that a lot of these dream life visions have pros and cons once you start to dig into them a little bit. But just like Zillow searches, you don’t really need to worry about how old the roof is or when the septic was last replaced. You are just exploring options, letting yourself dream and starting to gain a clearer picture of what you want your dream life to look like.
OK, so that was all fun and all, but where does it leave us? If you’re looking around your home right now, going wow, this is a far cry from the $10 million mansion I just picked out, you’re not alone. You may be looking around your life, saying “This isn’t my dream life!” And mama, I promise you, that’s a good thing! The first step to achieving your dream life vision is defining what that life looks like. The rest will come.
