Okay, so today is Payday, so that means that my paycheque becomes live today.
What that means is that the paycheque that I have had in my possession since last Friday becomes eligible for me to cash or deposit.
This is great and usually I am rushing to the bank right after work. This is because of more than just the giddy rush of currency flowing into my bank account.
This is because I have had a whack of bills and debts taking currency out of that bank account almost as fast. So fast that if I don’t deposit that cheque right on payday, I am deep trouble.
It is nice to see how times have changed and that urgency is no longer there. Don’t get me wrong, I am not about to not deposit my paycheque or hand it over to charities.
What Total Debt Freedom means is that if I want to push off depositing my cheque into the bank for a day in order to save fuel (as in not making an extra trip) I can.
I will deposit my cheque, and I will pay what I need to pay, but the world will not end if I do not pay them today.
I control the flow of the currency going in and out of my account, it does not control me. That is a nice thing, and with it comes a greatly reduced amount of stress . . . and freedom).
As always: Keep your head up, your attitude positive, and keep moving forward!
