“It’s about designing your life instead of letting society design it for you.”- Corbett Barr

I particularly like this quote as over the years we’ve asked ourselves more frequently what it is we want. Lifestyle design has long been in the media with advocates for and against it.

I’m very excited. My husband and I have decided to take some time to work on our future plans. Today will be our first day of our offsite. We even booked a room so we can focus. We often have conversations about our plans in the car, on holiday and here and there but taking time out of our everyday lives is new for us.

It is often easy to get caught up with life. You know what it’s like. We go from dropping off at daycare to work to picking up to dinner in the week and onto the weekend. Before you know it, a year or two has gone by. That’s why we decided to take a step back and look at what is important to us.

When brainstorming for topics to discuss, there were so many things. We both realize that this is just the beginning and it will be good to have this as a regular event, say quarterly.

I am glad we are making time to discuss what’s important for our family. I am also excited to see what comes of it.

Is it time for you too?
