#99. Another Boring "This Is My Why" Post

Well . . . I kept it short, so maybe it won't be too boring.

Here is how our family spent Sunday, July 15, 2023.

Sandy beach under our toes, son building sand structures, Pappaw being on water bucket duty, DeeDee helping with said sand structures, wifey getting some well-deserved time relaxing on a beach chair, and me just soaking it all in.

We then had cheeseburgers, fries, and ice cream to top off the day.

The best part? I spent absolutely zero time stressing out work on Monday.


The best I can guess is that building the life we want in the open has forced me to live more in the moment.

There are positives and negatives to building your life in the open. So far, the positives have outweighed the negatives.

Building In The Open

When I use this term, I mean allowing others to see honest, behind-the-scenes looks at our process. There is no one-size-fits-all approach to building your dream life, but if you keep your dream life as the end goal, you should stay motivated and flexible along the way.

This approach ups the ante on accountability. For example, telling yourself you will lose weight is one thing. But, joining a community and putting your weight loss journey/progress on social media is a whole different type of accountability.

I am not recommending that everyone try to build the life they want in the open. However, I would encourage everyone to find at minimum an accountability partner to help you along the way.

Or, if there is not someone in your life that you trust with this role, start tracking your progress daily on paper (*cough* budgeting *cough*). Visually seeing your progress (or lack of progress) helps tremendously with accountability.
