Well Beyond Our Means

Working and feeling great about it material things seemed to over whelm my inner database. When I was out of work, I thought logically about ways in which to spend our families monthly earnings. As we knew that it had to last us threw the month. Once the money began to come easy. Budgeting our finances went straight out the window.

We started to live beyond our means. Living with in comfort would have been the logical thing to do. However, those wants that were listed on our refrigerator were now at arms reach and we couldn’t see past the greed. We had the means to live beyond our usual comfort zone, and we took advantage of the situation instead of investing our riches in to long-term ventures.

Those dreams of security and stability were possible; but instead of purchasing one family car we purchased two. Instead of getting a home that would accommodate us comfortably at a decent price. We bought a home with more rooms needed. At a much higher price that we could not afford in the event one of us lost our cushy jobs.

Plan accordingly not only to your individual paths plans and visions; but as a family. Look to the future to gain and not have to return. Whether it be returning items to the store to get necessity’s. Or back pedaling to where you had managed to escape.

Pushing forward means, that you are adding steps to your ladder of success. Mistakes are to be made, but as I said before make these mistakes life experience that we learn from.

Myself and hubby had way beyond our means at one point and time. We allowed the look and feel of money to steal our dreams of comfort. Now that we have learned, we are on a true path of success. In which we and our children reap the benefits there of.
