But I Can’t Afford It
I’ve heard this statement —“I can’t afford it” – and it drives me BONKERS!
I remember when I decided to attend my first mortgage seminar. I had 2 children. I was making like $30,000 per year. The expense of airfare. The event. Oh, and don’t forget the babysitting/daycare issue that was going to cost me a ton of money.
I about fell over at the amount of money that I was going to spend.
Good Things DO NOT Come to Those Who Wait!
Stop me if you’ve heard this before…
…Good things come to those who wait!
No, they don’t. If that were true, you would be buying plane tickets the day of the flight. Buying a flashlight after the electricity went out. Or sending your kids to college the first day of school, hoping they can get in.

I Asked Her What Her Secret Was
Googling one day and doing research on another topic, I found this “secret” that I wanted to share with you. I could not find the name of the author or I would have given her writing creds.
Sharing with you because if you are going to fight, pick the battles that are MOST important to you… Everyone can read the entire blog post!
Always Use Your Good Dishes
When I was growing up, mother only used our “good dishes” during holidays or special occasions.
And that tradition of using the good dishes is passed down from generation to generation—thinking that the ONLY time you should use the china and silverware is during special times of the year…. Everyone can read the entire blog post!
