Money, Naturally

Sometimes it’s tough to find a topic to write about.

Not because I’m a dull or single-minded individual (I don’t think I am?). And not because I’m an unintelligent human being (again – I don’t think I am?). But mostly because, at this stage of the game, my mind is almost completely consumed by money. Money issues, money earning, money spending, money billing, money money money.

Let me tell you. It. Sucks.

I would much rather enjoy spending time with my friends without worrying that tonight’s the night I’m going to overdraw my account. I want to be able to help my family out in a pinch. I want to not worry “Do I get gas? Or do I get food?”

It’s a tough economy that we’re living in. And I’m grateful for oh so much in my life (about everything, actually, except for my financial situation). I have a relatively good paying job (for retail). I have guaranteed hours, health benefits, and a manager willing to help me to the next level. Since graduating college I have never been in such a good position in January. I have incredible friends and a family who, for some reason (still to be determined by me), have decided to stick with me through thick and thin.

Could I stand to make a couple more bucks a week? Sure. But who couldn’t? We must focus on the good, let go of the bad, and just move forward.
