I wanted to chat this month about being grateful; so many of us take appreciation for granted and don’t say thank you enough. Offering gratitude and thankfulness should occur more than in the month of November, in fact it should occur daily. Be kind to one another, speak softly and gently, think before you say those words…these are not just proverbs or cliches, but wise words to live by. How can you show gratitude? Saying thank you is a beginning but you may need to go further, show your appreciation to those around you…Teachers & Professors, Moms & Dads, Grandparents, Neighbors, Siblings and other Family, Friends, Coworkers, Church workers….who would you thank today! It doesn’t have to be monetary, it could be using words, homemade gifts, or cash/gift cards in a hand written note.
Show you care, show you are grateful…then budget to do it more often for those you appreciate!!
Do you ever feel like a fool? Do you feel overwhelmed? Ever feel like there is more month than money?? You are not alone, over 60% of consumers feel foolish when it comes to their knowledge of money. What you need to focus on and remember is that not about knowledge, it’s about applying that knowledge. You are your best accountability partner! You are no one’s fool when you know where your money is spent, how much you have in savings, you set boundaries for spending to enjoy all aspects of life: work, fun, and meeting your needs. When you are ready to have a second partner contact our coaches using the calendar link here. We look forward to making cents4you!
