I don’t know how I got off on the subject of debt. Probably because I’ve got a new Lowes card that I keep buying wood for my massive back yard fence. Actually, I’m in a place in my life where I’ve mentally moved away from worrying about money and mostly have good money thoughts these days. Not really because I’m making that much more money, more that I’m just in a better place. And without that pressure I’m feeling much better about making money and paying off my credit cards, until I run them up again.
We all go through ups and downs in life. Some tragic, some comic, some completely absent of all reason. That’s just the way it goes I guess. But no matter what we always seem to get by.
That happens financially too, no matter how broke you think you are, you still always seem to get by and maintain your normal standard of living. I was just reading about the Russian planter aristocracy, they basically never had any money at all but still lived their whole life in extreme luxury, despite immense debt. Mainly because they were used to that standard of living and mentally and psychically wouldn’t accept a compromise, whether they knew it or not.
Anyway, “We Still Get By” focuses more on getting by from a domestic standpoint. Thanks for listening!!
