I like to tell people that money is one of my favorite topics. I just get so pumped about personal finance and budgets and organization. Sometimes the jazz hands come out. Seriously, it’s exciting stuff.
But, I’ll admit, sometimes I hate money. Because as much as I budget and plan and work extra outside of my 40 hour a week job, I still feel like I don’t have enough.
I’m sure I’m not alone.
What pains me is that I don’t want more money to buy a new Coach bag. I don’t want more money to get a nicer house. I don’t even want more money to buy steaks at the grocery. I’m pretty much over materialism and keeping up with the Joneses.
I just want to have enough to pay back some student loans, maybe start a family, move back to the States, get an apartment so I can get a great job, and maybe go back to school (again.) You know, life stuff.
I know that I’m very fortunate and have a better income than than the average person. I know many people are unemployed, and I know that I live in a country that is impoverished. So, I suppose I don’t hate money. I’m very, very grateful for what I have. I just wish it was less of an obstacle, and I wish it didn’t matter so much.
Okay your turn. Money: Do you love it or hate it?
