Being skint was temporary (thankfully)

It is better to be short of cash than short of character

Yesterday I wrote about how having just over £2.00 is ok if everything is covered and if you don’t measure your worth against a temporary number in the banking system.

I am pleased to say that yesterday was the final day of a two week skint period, and we are back in the black as of this morning.

Hunkering down to ride out the difficulty, covering the basics, still seeing friends, not hermiting or withdrawing, making the best of what you have, cooking from storage items, eating simply, choosing to face it all, switching off lights not in use, knowing that you are a very talented individual who has chosen this path for a better future, keeping a realistic but positive perspective, driving slower and smoother to conserve fuel all help.

If I had been ignorant or dismissive and refused to face the inevitable and went ahead anyway, well, good luck to me. 

BUT, If I do everything I can but still fall short, so be it, it’s not permanent, it is temporary and it is not to be feared. 

Things turn around with a dash of luck, a lot of work and a heap of determination. 

There’s a saying among our southern hemisphere cousins,

“If you don’t like the weather in New Zealand, come back in 10 minutes!”. 

Its the same around here in a fiscal sense, if you don’t like the bank balance on your account right now, come back tomorrow.
