So, you know, we’re actually a lot better than we used to be, with money, and Grant makes a lot more than he used to. But we still have a general paycheck-to-paycheck “everything is backed up” thing going on that we hope to gradually pull ourselves out of. He thinks about it a lot.
Anyway the point is, everybody else I know who doesn’t have much money stresses about it constantly. This - up above, this image, this gif - this is my approach to bill collectors calling, my terrible credit report, what our bank account looks like, etc. I mean you do what you can do, all you can do, and then there’s nothing else you can do, you know? There’s no point whatsoever in working hard, making sacrifices, and then allowing it to bleed into your time with your kids/spouse/bubble bath/dinner.
I realize it’s not that easy for everyone else, but damn am I glad it is for me. This is one perk of growing up always on the verge of homelessness and having things work out somehow every single time. I know it’ll always work out somehow. *shrug*
Sometimes I really think that quote is some of the greatest wisdom ever written.
I’m not kidding.
