In August 2018, our lives were turned upside down. Roughly two years prior, we had uprooted our lives, sold our house, and moved away from both sides of our family to pursue a dream: to own and operate our own farm. In short, the current owners lied to us about many things and in many ways showed they didn't care about us or our supposed shared dream of the farm passing to us in a land contract deal four years from now. We had so many dreams for the farm and the oversized farm house and appartment we wanted to fill with foster/adoptive children and chrisis pregnancy home seekers. Such big dreams! But we talked often, drempt often, and made lots of plans. By the end of our stay on the farm, we were having to re-evaluate our dreams more than once a month. Putting plans on hold and trying to manuver everything we could to keep the farm in the black despite the current owners continued very poor financial decisions. We found ourselves at a point of basically being slaves to the owners' insatiable desire for more without the support of more hired help or more efficient equipment to sustain such desires for more.
We left the farm and our dreams were crushed.
Buying a farm takes a lot more money than what a couple in their 20s and 30s can amass. This appeared to be the only farming opportunity we may get, and it was a rare one. My husband doesn't want to dream because he says it will do no good anyways, our great dreams have always come to an end in some way from house flipping, to having lots of biological children, to owning our own farm. I bought this book because I read some articles late one night after yet another fight that mentioned dreams and had a link to this book. I bought it from Amazon because I could get a used one for half the price of new. I only just read it but I know this book will bring big changes to my life and has already made a difference in my outlook and morale. it has the 12 part list to dreaming and pursuing dreams that was mentioned in the article which is what I hoped it would have. I know my husband may not read it, but if my attitude changes and can be bolstered, it will have a far-reaching effect on him too.
What are your dreams? Read this book and start chasing your dreams (again).
Note: on first glance after receiving the book, I thought, "oh no, I've bought the wrong book! This looks like it is all about dreams for a business perspective! Shoot!" And then I thought, well, we do hope to own a business again and my daughter is home sick today so I have time....why not? Best book I have read in a long time! It's in 2 parts more or less. I had to force myself to read the second section which is only about 50 of the overall 150 pages. It's wonderful too! The first half gets you excited about dreaming, the second half addresses reality. Excellent book for our dream crash aftermath. Thank you Matthew Kelly and Team!
And I don't say that lightly.
I have bought over a dozen copies and have started to give them away.
Or at least, I've shared the story herein with as many people as possible.
Read it. Share it. And Live it.
Stop leading your life of "quiet desperation"
I love the fact that it's based on a true story.
