I’m a gal known for living large. It never ceases to amaze me how many people look at me with wonder when I talk about buying a one-way ticket to Australia, living in Asia for nine years, moving across three different states and still manage to keep my money stuff together.
I can honestly say it sounds like a glamorous life, and I’ve lived a great life so far filled with adventure. Definitely no regrets here.
Perhaps my biggest adventure to date is not only giving birth, but taking care of a rowdy infant while working at home in a small rural town in the US. I’m sure it sounds totally mundane to you, but for someone who is used to sprawling urban areas and interacting with lots of people on a daily basis, this past year was a real challenge for me.
What was the most surprising to me was the money lessons I learned in the past 12 months. At the risk of making this blog post becoming too focused on me, I’ll try to distill the lessons I’ve learned into stories you can take and try to apply it in your own life.
