Sometimes I feel like a big cry baby. I make a good salary and my wife, Dream, chooses not to work. We have a nice house in a nice neighborhood, and yet I’m not happy with this.
I’m not happy that I spend so much time and money on my commute. I’m not happy that the utilities and upkeep of our house is so expensive. These are things that most other normal families just deal with. These are the things that almost every other person in our neighborhood deals with.
Then, as part of our planned changes, we are planning to sell our house and move to some nice apartments. Even in this I feel like a big baby. I mean if I really want to save, why not live in some really cheap apartments or buy a super cheap foreclosure home. Then we would have all kinds of money to spend on fun stuff.
The truth is, I want the best that I can afford while actually living within my means. And when I think about it like that, I no longer feel like a cry baby. I am not crying about not being able to live in the most expensive house, not having the nicest cars, and not taking the most exotic vacations. No, we are not crying about all that. Instead, we are DOING something about it.
