It’s hard out there.  Living life and getting caught up in the day to day while trying to be an adult to pay the bills and take care of those that you love. Before you know it, you feel like you’re just surviving or existing, living this apathetic slow march to retirement (if you think you will be able to retire that is).  You feel as though you are missing out on what you’re supposed to be doing by living life to the fullest…whatever that means.
