The American Dream. It’s what we all strive for, right?

But what constitutes as THE American Dream? Who decides what is THE perfect American life to live?

If you know the answer, tell me– please!

I have been so blessed with an amazing husband. Together, we live in a very nice home and drive decent vehicles. We’re able to do this because we have great jobs. I’ve always been a goal-setter and a planner–with most intentions to live comfortably {happily}. Is this the American Dream?

My intentions have been found; both the comfortable and the happy parts. But I’m not bragging- by any means! Recently, we have decided to put our beautiful home on the market, with the intention to move out of town.. {or even a little father…} This means leaving our great jobs and wonderful families, as well. Are we insane?! Why would be want to change our “cookie-cutter” life?

What’s not to love about how we have chosen to live our life? These are very valid questions that one might ask. Chances are, you’re thinking it right now.

So, how does one choose to live their life? As much as we might believe that the “cookie-cutter” life is the right way to live– there really is no wrong way. There comes a point when you must ask yourself, “Who am I living my life for?”

If you’re answer is for anyone but your own, it’s time to re-evaluate.

There is no perfect description of the perfect life. The only thing I can tell you, is this– Choose to do the things that excite you. Each day, even each minute is not promised. Make sure you are filling these moments doing the things you love most. Sometimes we must make sacrifices– but in the end, if there’s a will, there’s a way.

Happiness, Audra
