Making what you want count
This past week I have been talking to Madison about keeping track of all her money in one place. She is still talking about wanting this rumble bubble, which I really think is ridiculous and a waste of money. Therefore, I made the suggestion of her saving up the money for it. After I told Madison to keep track of her money, she did just that. She put all her money in her purse and on a trip to the store, Madison saw some small little toys for a couple of dollars. I told her, you have enough money to get that if you want but I thought you are saving your money for this rumble bubble thing. Madison said yes, and there it is, it’s 20 dollars! You don’t have enough for the rumble bubble but you do have enough for the small toys. I told her if you buy the small toys it would just take you longer to save up for your rumble bubble. She decided to not to get the small toys, wait and save her money.
That got me thinking about my goals, and saving and paying off my loan. My cousins were talking about taking a trip to California for New Years and the ticket prices are around the same price as my balance on my loan. I’m rethinking it because I’m focused on my goal and I want to follow through with it. My number one goal is to get this loan paid off and I can’t get distracted by small play things. I’m super proud of Madison and myself for seeing what we want and sticking to it. We decided to make what we want count as our number one focus.
