I trust you are doing okay. We’re nearing the end of the first half of 2022, and I’m curious, how does that make you feel? Good? Anxious? Indifferent?
If you feel anxious or despondent that you don’t seem to have your finances in check yet, here’s some encouragement for you: We have six months left in the year. That’s ample time for you to give your finances some sort of structure. I believe in you!
If you feel indifferent, um… I’m not sure that’s a great place to be. A quote by poet, Ha Jin reads “Indifference is the strongest contempt”, and contempt is not what you should feel about your finances. I think a great place to start in working through those feelings is figuring out why you feel that way in the first place, and you can work your way out from there.
If you feel great, that’s awesome! I am glad you are making financial decisions you are proud of. You should know, however, that the journey to wealth creation is a continuous one. You should constantly look out for ways you can work towards your financial goals more efficiently.
However you feel, I have included a few resources to help you out in the For You section, be sure to look through them.🤗
