Financial Freedom

When I was in high school, I never thought about what I would do if I retire because it seemed so far away. When I hit college, I was just trying to get by and deal with life outside of a structured environment.

Now life seemed to accelerate and I’m here, as a single mother, divorced with a child and no support from my ex. I have my writing and full time job but I have to wonder will I be financially stable in the future? Not knowing the answer is a little scary. I’m good with managing money but not very good with understanding the way it all works in order to make my finances work for me.

A friend of mine took me to a seminar in order for me to learn just how to do that. I’m still contemplating making the move to attend the workshop, but I looked around at how happy everyone seemed to be, when they were in control of their money. Not knowing what the future holds could drive anyone nuts, especially at how insecure the economy is right now.

It’s never too late to understand your finances and it’s always good to think ahead to your retirement. That’s one thing I was able to think more clearly about. Because I am still enjoying life, I’m healthy and happy it doesn’t mean I should leave my plans of a comfortable retirement for the last minute. Try to have something in place for you and your family. No one wants to be struggling in their senior years.
