I’m sitting on my couch in my 2-bedroom apartment in Midwestern Missouri and finding myself so envious of these young, rich couples traipsing around the island of St. John looking for the perfect vacation home.
I just realized that I feel this way a lot when I watch HGTV (which by the way, is like crack – I need help). I want to landscape the yard that I don’t have. I want to renovate the Income Property below me that is actually an apartment that I don’t own. I want to find my vacation home in St. John!
However, I’m only 25 and I haven’t achieved all of my goals of home ownership and financial freedom yet. I plan so much for the future that I sometimes forget to live in the moment.
Guess what, young, rich couple?! I don’t have to do maintenance on my apartment! Good luck with that in St. John!
Take that, HGTV!
