Moment of wisdom: I was not always the most patient individual; especially when it came to purchases. I was a very impulse buyer and sometimes ‘wants’ were ‘needs’ even though technically they were still ‘wants’! I have really prayed to slow down and use discernment and also to give myself a window of time to see if it is really what I want. Instead of taking away now from living expenses, I now save for purchases that I truly want and budget for what the needs are if a ‘true’ need really arises unexpectedly. I now have wisdom and clear distinction as to what a ‘need’ vs. a ‘want’ really is!
There are going to be days you face challenges. There are going to be days you wish you did not get out of bed. There are going to be days that your emotions get the best of you. There will be days where every moment feels like a test. There will be days where every moment seems like it went wrong.
In days like these…take a deep breath, inhale, exhale, inhale, exhale and repeat as many times as needed. Then I encourage you to take a moment to yourself and begin to pray. Allow yourself grace.
