A man travels the world over in search of what he needs and returns home to find it. George Moore
Last night’s worry—money. Specifically, how would I pay the bills that continue to come in? Just as I think the outgoing is not ahead of the incoming, two new bills arrive. How could I have forgotten the homeowner’s insurance is due? And what is this bill from the oncologist? I thought my insurance covered that yearly visit.
This morning I wake with my Muse encouraging me to apply a bit of creativity to my financial woes.
Ah, yes. I was a hippie from the sixties. I was resourceful. How did “life” get so expensive?
I begin to make a list. I can let go of cable television; it’s certainly not earning its keep.
Eating out will be scaled back…drastically. (Except for Sunday morning breakfast with my brother and other important celebrations!) I can eat healthier with simple foods at home.
Most of the things I enjoy cost very little. Writing, reading, walking in the park, being with friends, working in the garden.
Just watch the change, Laura. Apply a bit of mindfulness to the needs in your life.
