In many of my posts, I talk about the importance of living an authentic life and not depending on external things to feel happy. However, on the same note, I also believe living a balanced life also means having a balanced approach to money.
Spend Your Money Wisely
You work hard at making a living and paying your bills every month. But in the process, you forget that going out there and working is not just about making money, but also spending it to fulfill whatever desires you have.
Making and spending money should be an enjoyable process. You have one life, after all. If you want to treat yourself to a luxurious meal once in a while, by all means do it. You deserve it. Do you love shopping? Buy a lovely dress. Money is meant to bring you pleasure and satisfy your desires.
The danger only comes when you depend on it for being happy and it takes away from living from your heart.
Saving Money for Your Future is Equally Important
Set up a budget for the month and year. Pay your bills and spend money to pamper yourself, but make sure you allocate a specific amount each month into your savings fund.
The years go by past and before you know it, you will have gathered a pretty large nest egg. You can use it for emergency purposes or a special vacation. That money will be there for you to use 🙂
