This will forever be a battle for me. Who knows why it’s so hard!? Obviously people save money to have financial security. We are still really starting out in life. Hopefully having a great savings will take some of the stress away that keeps me up nights, you know?
I need to shift my way of thinking. Going from ‘I need this thing to make me happy’ to ‘What can I DO to make myself happy’. It has been good for inspiration. I have been forced to sit down and evaluate things that are important to me, like blogging. I need to push myself to learn more. I feel a public library trip is in my near future. (Since i’m saving money I can’t just hop on over to Amazon).
It is also nice to work with Ioua on a common goal. I’m not kidding when I say it is really hard for me. I am ashamed to think of all the times I have been a brat because I didn’t get my way … and it’s been about a week since we really started this thing. I appreciate Ioua so much for his patience. He has such a good heart and I know its probably hard for him sometimes. At least I’m working on it, right?
I also want to be good with money so that when the time comes I can teach my children. I don’t want them to have to stress, even though I know some times you really just can’t help it. But if they can help it – I want them to have those skills.
Lastly, and possibly the most important to me; I want to prove to myself that I am capable of accomplishing my goals. If that isn’t a good enough reason then I don’t know what is. I can do hard things.
