I want to dedicate this month to talking about all things money in recognition of it being Financial Literacy Month. And as we continue to make talking about money openly and honestly less taboo, let’s jump in with personal finance.
And let’s also remember that when sharing our personal finances journey… it’s personal. Personal in the individualistic sense, not hide it away in shame sense.
My personal finance journey won’t look like yours and yours won’t look like mine. Our debts don’t look the same, our savings don’t look the same, our investments don’t look the same, our income doesn’t look same and our financial goals aren’t the same.
Personal finance is literally personal, tailored to our our income, our expenses and our spending/saving habits. So don’t feel like you need to compare yourself to others you know or multi-millionaries who are further along in their personal finance journey. On the flip side, don’t feel like you’re stuck in your journey either. You change directions by changing your habits. A journey, after all, is about momentum, progress snd moving forward.
Let your personal journey always be moving forward to where you want to be financially.
