Yesterday, my wife and I celebrated our 6th year wedding anniversary, and for the first time in our relationship, we talked about life without limitations. While our daughter napped, we tried to come up with a few personal values we wanted to build our life around.
I value our family, time, and freedom above everything. She values our family and time above everything.
It was a challenge to leave finances out of the discussion, but once we did, we realized time together was the most valuable asset to both of us. After that, we were able to focus on the sacrifices we were willing to make that would allow us to have more time in our lives.
