When it comes to spending focus on meaning by Don Starks with no sidebar dot com. The rhythm of daily life routinely shifts from slow and easy too fast and furious. No matter how hard we try to rein in the crazy and slow our lives down the crazy. Creeps back in when we aren't looking as a result life as a minimalist always in search of simplicity is a never ending journey. We are always on the path never reaching the destination. This sort of journeys suits me. Fine this same phenomenon occurs with money. We can be extra careful and thoughtful about our spending. And then boom here comes the crazy some unexpected large expense or a series of little but poor spending decisions all of which can cause us to steer. Ourselves straight off. The financial wellness path. How meaningful is this purchase? For this reason. I've started thinking about spending in a new way, and my thought process is increasingly becoming a habit. The concept isn't difficult, but it can be challenging to remember to ask myself. How meaningful is this purchase? Of course. I don't do this for every. Bill that comes into the house. I'm referring to daily spending spending on convenience spending to reduce emotional pain or stress spending to keep up with the persona we have developed. It's easy to be judgmental about quite a bit of our spending who hasn't succumbed to the fast food siren song when the workday has run just a bit too long, and the thought of going home to cook nutritious meal makes you wanna cry who hasn't bought a sugary treat or other impulse purchase. Because our day was challenging and some inner voice whispers that we deserve a treat. If we objectively evaluate this sort of spending. It would result in many budget cuts on the surface, those adjustments might seem wise, and right, but depending on the situation it might be wrong to cut those so-called unnecessary expenses. This is where it's paramount that we focus on meaning bad habit or important ritual. Let me offer a personal example of this sort of behaviour, my husband, and I home school our daughter Rohan, and I run a business once a week. She comes with me to the office. Do a little bit of work and work on school assignments. While I work in the office, almost without exception. We leave the house early and hit Starbucks for breakfast. Now by anyone's measure, this is not the best choice as a parent. My daughter is not getting a very nutritious breakfast, nor am I what we get is enormously. Overpriced nonetheless, it has developed into a habit on the surface. The seems like a habit that needs intervention clearly capable of having something fun nutritious and interesting to eat at home on those mornings when we working girls are heading to the office a practice like that would save utilize of money and probably save time too. But even as I am feeling all the parental guilt about this bad habit. I don't berate myself. Instead, I smile because this ritual is an echo of one I had with my father when I was a kid on Saturday mornings. He got up early to go to his office to get some extra work done. He would wake me up and asked me if I wanted to go along the answer was always an enthusiastic. Yes. Because it meant stopping for breakfast at my dad's favorite diner. I was and still am. A huge fan of big breakfasts this time with my dad became a happy ritual. And also get the satisfaction of helping him out with some work when I accompanied him to his office. So now Rohan, and I have developed a similar joyful ritual in spite of the fact that I spent fourteen dollars each Thursday when we stopped for breakfast. It's worth it. Because the experience means something to us. It's our thing it began accidents. But after a handful of times are pitstop has become a habit when she slow to get out of bed. Those mornings a whispered reminder of Starbucks for breakfast is all it takes to motivate that girl, this ritual might fall into the category of the worst sort of spending. It's convenient, but it's not particularly healthy and fourteen dollars per week. Does add up truth is this splurge means something to my daughter and me, and therefore it has a sanctioned place in our budget evaluate your spending in the context of meaning using the lens of meaning is a way to filter your discretionary spending. What does this purchase mean to you? Does it have any? Meaning when you are about to buy. Unhealthy snack or another pair of jeans? You don't need ask yourself. Why am I doing this? What does that purchase mean to you? If the purchase will lift up your soul with happiness or nourish your body with goodness. You will have a positive feeling when you ask yourself the question. Instead, if the purchase is simply out of habit, or it's something you're trying to quit buying notice that too so pause evaluate what you are about to spend your hard earned money on practice taking a deep breath while you ponder the meaning of the purchase as we work to simplify our lives and cut out the unessential. We shouldn't overlook how we spend our money just as our lives can easily slip back into an undesired hectic rhythm. So to can are spending slip back into meaninglessness. Choose to be thoughtful and adopt spending habits that are meaningful to you. You just listened to the post titled when it comes to spending focus on meaning by dawn Starks with no sidebar dot com. And I can definitely relate to what Don was saying there about her experiences with her daughter, and even if there is no particular link to the past like there was for dawn on her father sometimes little fast food traditions. Like that with kids can give you a chance to bond a little bit, more and more importantly when your kids are small and usually brings about good moods, and some peace and quiet, which as a parent, you just need sometimes.
