Time is Money.
This saying sum up what I’ve learned in the year 2016 and this two-word is fundamental for most of us.
Time. I turned 25 this year and I’ve been stressing myself thinking that I only have a few years to do all the things I want to do. I told myself that I have to marry when I turn 28. Crazy isn’t? I know right, and I’m not even in a relationship. Furthermore, I felt lost, stuck and anxious. I think that I’m not getting any progress or not moving forward. They call it quarter-life crisis and yes, I had it this year.
Lesson: Breath. Read. Pray. And enjoy your own journey. Never rush but never be complacent.
Money. I love adventures and travelling and it is like a nicotine in my body that is hard to resist and so I traveled. I guess, a bit more to what I can afford. This is a slap truth and I’m telling you now because I don’t want you to commit the same mistake.
Lesson: SAVE! Value your work that gives you paid leaves and salary to travel. Separate your travel fund to your emergency funds and Bills.
Let me share what’s my 2016 like and how I spent my time and money this year.
