Saving can be good. It’s allowed me to live in New Zealand, teach in Ukraine, and sleep in the Ice Hotel in Lapland Sweden.
I was saving for a spunky sports car. I even had the first year of insurance and maintenance saved. I hit my mark and began the search for the criteria I had. Things weren’t coming together easily. I pulled back, paying attention to gas prices, my leaving a job, and acknowledging maybe the thrill was in the chase. Maybe I’d already hit my goal without getting the car.
Within a year I was diagnosed with stage three breast cancer. www.CancerRealAnswers.com. I lived on my sports car savings, and other savings. I’ve since bought a car—not new or sporty, but it’s a good car, paid for, and gets good gas mileage. Thank God for $avings!
