I Love Me – Financially

Girls Talk

I am not rich; I guess I just have enough monetary resources to support our daily living. I have four (4) active bank accounts which I am not able to maintain the supposed Average Daily Balance (ADB). Why I am telling you this? Not that I want you to have pity on me but it is the real thing.

As of now I don’t have existing savings on hand except for this set of coins I keep inside my office drawer. 

 (one of my office mates told me that its as if tokens for videoke )

Given this situation, I still love myself as I’ve been through a lot of financial turmoil but I was able to withstand them. And I should give recognition to my friends who have helped me all these years and most especially BRO who have never turned his back on me (I bet HE does it to anybody as well) particularly during those times when I was the only one providing for our everyday living.

At present, it’s enough that I have funds allotted for my fixed expenses such as mobile phone bills, internet fees, housing mortgage, utilities (electricity), Macoi’s needs (milk, diaper, distilled water, vitamins, medical check-ups and immunization, etc), transportation allowance (approx. P15/day), grandma’s meds, personal hygiene supplies and that’s it. Thanks to “dadi” for being such a good contributor – at least I am no longer having budget deficit.

Though I sometimes still cannot help myself from complaining, I have considered myself blessed and more fortunate than those people who; live in the street, not eating meals for at least three (3) times a day, do not own shelter to protect them on weather assaults, do not have medicines to heal and cure their sickness and pains and obviously do not possess steady financial resources which was the root cause of this poverty that they usually experience.

What’s I am trying to avoid right now is to add on my debts as admittedly I still have few payables to be settled.

So true! Often it is easy to fall into the trap of what we don't have, but we should be grateful for what we do have. Thanks for putting it all in perspective!

It is really amazing that even in the toughest situations, we were still able to handle it.

I'm not rich either ^_^ I'm thankful for this week's GT topic, because it helps me count my blessings. And like you said - "Though I sometimes still cannot help myself from complaining, I have considered myself blessed and more fortunate than those people who; live in the street." Very right attitude. :)

we are not rich too and earning just enough to pay our bills but we are grateful and contented with what we have.

We don't need to be rich to be satisfied with our lives. As long as we have roof over our head, food to eat, and clothes to wear, we're good. But, we also have personal needs and if we can sustain those with what we earn, we're good too. Nothing to complain about. rich or poor, same lang yan, bigas din ang kinakain nila, so..I don't really see the big difference.

Kayce said...

yeah youre right sis! we are not rich but we are still thankful to God that we can still survive in this world.

Please check out my I Love Me, Financially post too.

it's a comforting thought, to know that we may not be rich, but we are still blessed with family and friends who are there for us when the going gets tough :)

see you again next week ;) *hugs*

Don't give up on yourself dearie :) Always hope for an even better future ;) You should be proud of yourself for being able to finance all the necessary things for living, cause so many people are not being able to even do that. ~mwah
