As the lyrics to one of my favorite songs go:
Are you a dreamer also and just don’t know how to take action? Keep reading…
I sometimes find myself surprised at what I stumble upon at the local library. We’ve gotten kids books, music, audio books, downloadable books,DVD’s, and even watched a magic show or two. I’ve seen puzzles and games there, and they even have computers with games for kids or internet access for people who need it.
They do a lot of free events also, like the summer reading program or the Random Acts of Kindness December where kids can earn free books. We do these things every year and my kids love the library and to read. Seriously can’t think of anything better than my kids getting smarter while feeling entertained for free. 🤷♀️
While my kids have gone once a month and filled a bag of a bazillion books for years, I haven’t really taken full advantage for myself. I occasionally grab a trashy audiobook for my commute, or the book we’re reading in the book club I’m in, but just recently I realized something epic.
I’m NOT too old to learn new things. Im NOT too old to follow my dreams. I’m definitely NOT smart enough to know everything there is to know out there either. So why not take advantage of the free resources I have available?
As you have likely noticed, I AM a dreamer and I always dream big. I’m on a journey to improve the financials of my family and really into the F.I.R.E. movement (Financial Independence Retire Early). I have also been interested in real estate investing for years. The library was that next step for me that took me from dreaming to doing. I have already read 6 books this year, and have gained the confidence and knowledge I was lacking to just go for it already.
What have you been dreaming about and what are you waiting for? I bet there’s a book that can turn you into a doer at your local library. 📚 Still scared that you won’t be able to turn your dreams into a reality? I bet there’s a book for that also, and seriously..don’t be scared..it’s free, so you have nothing to lose and only knowledge to gain. 🤓
