I don’t know about you but I struggle every month to make it to payday. Honestly between you and me, I don’t know why! I have an amazing job and I get a fair amount of money every month. I don’t have bills to pay, I’m stilling living at home (rent free). – Lucky I know! I only have to pay for my car and my phone. I thank my lucky stars that I have the life I do. I just don’t know how I struggle each month! – Ill have around £20 by the last week in the month. Ok, that was a lie. I know exactly were my money goes. I spend all my money on food. Yes food. I waste all my money on food. At the time I will be happy eating my life away, then at the end of the month I realise that I’m literally wearing my money. (Through the pounds that I have put on in the month).
The first day of getting paid is always an amazing feeling! – I love it. It feels like the world is your oyster you can do anything. If you want that pair of shoes you buy those shoes, if you want that handbag you get that handbag. I buy loads of makeup, bags and things that I don’t actually need. I think that everyone buys things that they don’t need when they get paid. Its like whatever is in my eye line I will buy. – Its like I’m a fabulous princess at the start of the month. Going out having such an amazing social life, doing whatever it is I want. Then throughout the month I start to fizzle out and start thinking and saying the I don’t have enough money, they I’m going to stay in. Blah, Blah, Blah. I turn from this amazing social princess into a toad. Its like the magic washes away, like cinderella at midnight.
Getting paid is a wonderful feeling, however I sometimes think that its sad. Sad that we are all confined by money. Always worrying when the next pay day is. Always worrying if we are able to get promoted to earn more money. Always thinking of new ways to get more money. In todays society, everything revolves around money. Ill hold my hands up, I’m always worrying about money. I’m always wanting the bigger better things in life. However when I take a step back I start to think deeper and realise that money isn’t everything. Yes I understand that we need it. Actually, you know what I think money is more of a want. We want money. I don’t think that we necessarily need it. – I mean, I know we need it for food. However, I know that I could be very happy without it. (I love my handbags, makeup, shoes everything, but I don’t need them to be happy). At the end of the day, I don’t think that any of us need money to be happy. – It helps don’t get me wrong, but there is better more pressing things in life to think about.
Need and want, are very different things.
