“As a woman you are better off in life earning your own money. You couldn’t prevent your husband from leaving you or taking another wife, but you could have some of your dignity if you didn’t have to beg him for financial support.”
–Ayaan Hirsi Ali
This weekend, I’m visiting my family, it’s a birthday weekend here!!! Currently, 3:50 AM and I’ve woken up brutally from a nightmare that I’d frankly like to forget – Hence why it won’t be discussed here. I have also realized that my mom snores all night and since we share a bed, I won’t be falling asleep anytime soon…
Yesterday, we (siblings & I) went to the shopping mall, although there is money in my bank account and several things that I need (okay… okay… maybe I just want them!), I didn’t buy a thing !!!
It’s a weird thing I found, once your goals are starting to define themselves, it becomes easier to say no to rushed expenses. The “do I want it or do I need it ” never made more sense.
The current financial goal for my upcoming paycheques: determine where my money is going.
