Yep, this is it, this is a day that has been coming for about, oh ten years or so . . . this is a paycheque where I don’t have to pay anyone . . . ANYTHING!
Yep, other than my Operational Expenses (As in: food, gas, etc . . . you know, what I need to exist) I don’t have to give any company or organization anything . . . nope . . . nothing . . . not a dime!
Just so we’re clear, I will not:
• Give you money
• Pay your bills
• Give to your charity
• Adopt you
• Let you stay in my trailer
• Let you freeload off of me
With that out of the way, back to your regularly scheduled blog entry.
I am aware and wish to apologize for the fact that all of Western Civilization will crumble tomorrow as a result of my stingy day today . . . so . . . sorry about that.
For today, however, I will pause, and reflect on the fact that all of my take home pay is mine and will stay in my account.
(Apart from what I am using to pay for my Operational Expenses, you technocrats.)
This is a good feeling and is a day that I have been working towards for years now.
With my next paycheque I will have to pay my monthly bank fees and my cell phone bill (yeah, and each 2nd payday of the month).
This is yet another turning point for me and I am still struggling with the impulse to buy this or that nifty thing.
I keep looking at these various items and try to convince myself how they would help me and are needed.
In truth I am doing okay with what I have and I am saving up for my future.
So I will continue to be stingy today, so I can have a better and brighter future tomorrow (and then be generous).
But I’m still not giving you cash, or letting you freeload.
As always: Keep your head up, your attitude positive and keep moving forward!
