A recent trip to Florida that was fraught with anguish and quasi-disaster has me thinking about a few things:
- responsibility. In financial endeavors, as in all parts of life, I realize (but need the constant reminder) that in order to make the most of each day *I must take responsibility for what I bring into my life and how I deal with it*.
- preparing for retirement. Im about to turn 30 and have no savings for the future, much less retirement. At our next 401k signup, I will definitely be opting in for the max.
- money spent on valuable experiences is always worth it. Seeing loved ones and other travel is one of the things I enjoy spending money on.
