Here are a few examples from this week.
- One of my staff member struggling to feed her family ie. afford to buy milk after all the bills are paid.
- A colleague of D's who "treated" himself to a brand new BMW 5-series (a long time dream car of mine...) has put it up for sale merely 2 months later at a pretty good discount.
- Me, declining numerous invites for dinners out to really nice restaurants because I have a budget for eating out now.
I am changing. So my relationships are being changed because of it. We are hosting more dinner parties at home. We have enough luxuries in our life that we are not feeling deprived if we cut out some daily, weekly or monthly habits.
Our life just looks different at first glance now. But on the inside, there is peace knowing that we do not have to worry about putting food on the table, or have to return a purchase after the fact, or feel bad or guilty for missing out.
