Our days are full! From work and family obligations to maintaining the house and the yard, we all have a never-ending list of “to-do’s” that fill up our day. It is so easy to get caught up in the hectic pace of life that we can look up and wonder, “Where did all the time go? How did we get here?” As the lazy days of summer slowly approach, it’s as if nature itself is reminding us to hit pause, to reset, to take time to dream.

When was the last time that you had a dream date? Not with some movie star or even to an exotic location, but a time set aside for you (and your spouse if you have one) to dream about what could be. If money was not an issue, what would you do? Where would you travel? Would you change your career? Would you have to time try a new hobby or learn a new language? Maybe you want to give back in a meaningful way to your community.

Summer can be a perfect time to take a dream date! Challenge yourself to really tap into what you would like to do with each day that has been gifted to us. Imagine this dream in high-definition. What does it look like? What do you hear and smell and taste in the dream? Who is with you and how does this make you feel? I always tell my kids that anything is possible with time and planning. Clarifying our dreams can add purpose and direction to our lives. An advisor who listens to these dreams can help create the path to get you there!
