Getting to Know Mom Series Day 26 What are your hopes and dreams for your prosperity?
This is a really interesting question because my initial thought was about building wealth. And then i paused a moment and googled the definition for prosperity and this is what i came up with:
Prosperity is the state of flourishing, thriving, good fortune and / or successful social status. Prosperity often encompasses wealth but also includes others factors which are independent of wealth to varying degrees, such as happiness and health.
Therefore, I am going to answer the question in three parts. Prosperity as it relates to wealth, happiness and health.
In terms of what my hopes and dreams are related to my (wealth) prosperity: Currently as a family and a couple, we have been discussing a lot of about paying off debt and beginning to save and build up our wealth. My dreams are that we have a house in the next year or two. Eight months of emergency funds. And money making money for us. Mr. Pancakes has been good at experimenting in stocks and mutual funds so i hope the Team Pancakes' portfolio continues to grow and flourish.
In terms of (happiness) prosperity: I hope that we continue to be blessed and in that blessedness I know we will be happy. Happiness is definitely a state of mind and being and I hope that we are living our lives in the way which we will be prospered. I hope we continue to laugh as individuals and as a family. I hope we continue to smile every single day. Sometimes, I look at how happy my son is and i am reminded that we should ALL experience that kind of unburdened and carefree happiness....at least once in our lives but hopefully every single day of our lives.
In terms of (health) prosperity: I hope to continue to be healthy. And i know this comes from watching what i put in my mouth and what i do with my body. It's definitely a life long journey but i am working on it. The goal to health and wellness begins with me so i hope to continue to be healthy. And also i want to keep the momentum going with my health goals by staying on #ProjectMilf!!!
There you have it...my dreams for my prosperity.
Lesson for Day 29: It's one thing to have prosperity of wealth but the most important is prosperity of health and happiness.
