It must weigh on your nerves knowing that you’re paying month after month on a home and it isn’t exactly your dream home!
The (Im)Possible Dream
We want to give everything the world has to offer for our children. We want our children to grow in a house that has enough space for them to run and enjoy their childhood. We’d like to give them roots, and a place they can go home to and get a break after or in between: a long and tiring journey towards their dreams or a series of battles that comes with growing up.
In order to give these things to them, we slave away and work so hard to provide for them. But the money we earn is always just enough to get by, we do not have extra money to afford a home of our own so, we resign ourselves and tag our visions as impossible dreams. But it is POSSIBLE!
