Today’s insight journey led me to the idea that saving money where we can is more than a sign of maturity, it is demonstrative of the love that we have for ourselves, our family, and others. How exactly is saving money a manifestation of our love? I am glad that you asked that question.
Saving money usually caries with it a sense of planning for the future, a keen awareness of the fact that there exists more in life than this one moment, and a level of responsibility that ensures that we consistently invest in ourselves, our loved ones, and our futures by paying ourselves first through a savings plan.
I can imagine that you are probably thinking that it is easier said than done to save money on a consistent basis. And it is also quite possible that you are thinking that the moment that you start saving money some financial crisis always occurs. I would be remiss if I did not admit that you may have a point, as saving money can be a challenge, especially at the initial onset, and oftentimes our commitment to saving money can be tested through the sudden surge of financial challenges just as we determine within ourselves to financially plan for our future. But the benefits that we experience from consistently making the decision to save money – peace of mind, financial stability and security, and reduction in stress levels – more than prove that the advantages outweigh the disadvantages.
