I started thinking about what that money would have done for me, for my then-husband, and for my FIVE kids.
How many trips to Disney, Broadway shows, movies, and kid enrichment activities (sports, music, summer camp, etc) would that have paid for?
Hell, I could’ve afforded some of those “luxuries” and maybe not had my shoulders hiked up to my ears from tension!
I saw friends who earned far less enjoying those things plus other things I considered “luxuries,” like yoga (which is awesome, but fricking expensive), massages, and expensive hair.
Not only did I not have money for those things, but I also didn’t have the time.
