Dreaming

I hate debt--duh. I hate it for so many reasons, but I realized something a few weeks ago that made me hate it even more. Debt robs you of hopes and dreams. It stifles you and makes you believe that things are not possible or achievable.
P and I have been out of debt for a few years now, but one thing we never got back to was dreaming. I didn't realize this until we moved to Dallas, but now, it is like we have given ourselves permission to dream again. Permission to hope and think about the future, about the things that we want to do and see. We have given ourselves permission to think about the future, to dream about what we want out of life, and it feels good.
There is nothing big coming up, but it feels good to just let go of that old and hope for things to come.

For I know the plans I have for you declares the Lord, plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you a hope and a future. Jermiaha 29:11

I agree with Denise...debt shackles you in chains and prevents you from living the life you really want to live.

Debt does hinder you from doing so many things with your life. You could be out traveling, buying things, starting families, but debt can not only prolong it but stop you from doing it. I'm happy your beginning to dream again friend. :)
