In other words, this is a top 10 list of the greatest passions in our life that do not require money( or at least not much).
Ryan and I were sitting in our comfy chairs Monday evening brainstorming a top 10 list. We had some great ideas but they were all just things we loved, and I wasn’t sure anyone would appreciate them quite like we do.
Camping lists…? We’ve done that!
Wildlife? Outdoors?… why we love our trailer? No… no..no.
Then I realized all the things we were naming off were things that weren’t material things. It wasn’t 5 Star vacations or dinners out. It’s the simple things in life that make us happy.
I thought, hey, this might be a good list.
So here is what we came up with…
- 💗 Love
We all know this is one is universally true.💕
We just have this one body, and one life to live. We need to take good care of our bodies and not take for granted our health. It can all change in a day.
This is a trickier one, you can’t specifically buy time, but you can hire an employee, a babysitter, or have a cleaning lady take away some of your burden. Technically these things do free up your time… 🤔
But you get the picture, don’t waste time not pursuing the things in life that are important to you.
I love memories of fun trips or new places we’ve been, but if I really think of my best memories… it’s about the people I’ve spent my time with.
If only we could buy wisdom! I wish I could know what I know now, when I was 18. Or to have my parents’ insight and perspective on life. It’s so priceless!
Whether it’s the beach, the mountains or just our dinky, little backyard, I always feel better outside.
I thought of lumping this under hobbies but it’s just too important to me. Even if I couldn’t buy books at Barnes & Noble I could still go to the library, and I will read until the day I die(I hope).
Ryan and I do not have many close family members, but family is so important. Even if you don’t see each other often, if one of us had an emergency our family would be there for us, and us for them. I also include our pets under this category, they are the best!
Ryan loves surfing, football and camping, those are his 3 favorite things aside from our children(of course). Camping is number one for me, wildlife, photography and reading are my things. Just be passionate about whatever your thing is and enjoy it!
I know not all education is free, but I do believe college is a priceless experience that everyone should have access to. I hope I continue to learn new things until the day I die! Ryan and I love looking up new things or sharing something we read in a book.
I hope you all enjoyed this post. It made for a good conversation for Ryan and I. We love lists! I’d love to hear your thoughts on our list. What would be different for your list?
Thanks for stopping by!
