Do you remember dreaming together during your courtship? Did you spend hours imagining your future? What songs did you listen to then? Which songs bring you back, fill you up with that intense sense of overwhelming love and desire to learn everything about each other? How does your current life compare to how you thought it would look?
Where will we live? What will our careers look like? How will we spend our weekends? Will we have children? Who will they look like? How many will we have? Where will we go on family vacations? Will we travel abroad? What traditions will we create? Do you still have those conversations? Do you still dream together?
Dreaming together allows us to step away from our routines, get out of our comfort zones, and think creatively.
If you had 10 minutes and $1,000,000, what would you do? Once you complete your list, spend a few minutes coming up with what you think your partner’s list would be.
How similar were your lists? Were there any surprises from either of you? How can you make your list come true? Are there things that you can implement now? What do you need to accomplish your dreams? Would a temporary second job, taking in a border, finding a source of passive income, or having a garage sale enable you to accomplish an item or two from your list?
We would love you to share your lists. In addition to inspiring other couples, posting some of your list could help you to accomplish an item or find someone willing to join you or help you reach a goal!
