If you’re ready for the ride, say aye

You know that moment when you put your finger on something that was just out of your reach before? The feeling that that envokes?

That feeling can be powerful.

Last night, Hubz and I were having a conversation about money. Not uncommon for most married couples (one would hope). We’re always keeping tabs on where this is and how much is there and what our next focus or strategy might be. We have two businesses, each with their own set of financials, our personal accounts, and investments spread out in several places. As much as we try to keep it as simple and straightforward as possible, the nature of our set-up with multiple entities and both of us being more and less involved in different pieces of it creates a bit of confusion at times. Regular pow-wow’s about the state of the union are necessary to ensure we’re on the same page and to keep that confusion at bay.

So, back to my question; you know that feeling? Sometimes when we’re reviewing things there is an aha! moment. Some fact or figure that was there yesterday, just as it is today, suddenly becomes clear. And that clarity can change everything.

Same facts –> a realization –> different feelings.

We have goals. Big, honkin’, you’ve-gotta-be-kidding-me-sized goals. As great as things are going with Vemma and with real estate and with my writing and with Hubz’ corporate job, reaching these up-amongst-the-stars goals is going to take effort.

More than effort. It’s not just going to require us to play harder but for the playing field to be bumped up to a whole new level.

Would we be happy moving forward at the current level? Of course.
But could we be really, really happy at a higher one? You bet.

We’re up for the challenge. You know us. We’ve never been ones to wait years and years for things to happen slowly at our current status quo.

Status quo breakers; we pride ourselves at being. Or at least, trying.

Same facts –> a realization –> different feelings.

We’re feeling different today. We’re ready to reach higher. We’re ready to push. We’re anxious to push. (Insert joke here about being anxious to literally push out an actual CHILD here in a few weeks.)

A healthy anxiety and a renewed, higher vision is leading to brainstorming and creative thinking. Out of the box thinking, if you don’t mind the cliche.

What is Above and Beyond? What’s above Above and Beyond? How can we make This happen? Like, no waiting around no holds barred Make It Happen?

Brainstorming is happening right now; me in my journal amongst running Monday morning errands, Hubz amongst busy Monday afternoon meetings at work. I can’t wait to compare notes tonight.

I’m not sure why I’m telling you all of this, other than to say look out. Who knows what’s coming. I have no idea what it might be but we’re ready for it to hit us. Ready to share it with you.

If you’re ready to go along for the ride with us, say aye.
