The Hardest Things in Life are Often the Most Worthwhile
Hey everyone, the weekend is here at last and I hope you’ve all got something nice planned. If you’ve not had chance to check into Money Rebound this week then be sure to pay us a visit today as we’ve published a couple of really great posts this week. Our Staff writer Jen from The Happy Homeowner wrote a great post showing us that money making doesn’t have to be a boring affair; instead it can actually be fun and exciting if you just take the time to think outside of the box. Then on Wednesday I published a post from a freelancer friend of mine Elisha talking about how she manages to balance working from home as a freelancer with being a full time mother. As Daisy from over @ Suburban Finance commented, most of us can only imagine how tough that must be!
Tough but Rewarding
It’s often the case in life though that the things that require the most effort are usually the most rewarding. Whether you’re working from home during tough economic times so that you can also be there to spend time with the kids, or perhaps you’re paying off debt or saving money, whatever your cause the most worthwhile things often require immense dedication and perseverance, but the rewards can also be truly life changing and enriching.
Unfortunately previous decades of easy credit and care free financial living have caused many of us to forget that and instead we tend to want things to come easily. The flip side of the principle that the hardest things are often the most worthwhile is that when things do come too easily to us, they tend to bring little or no lasting reward, in fact they can sometimes damage us. So if you’re struggling in your battle with debt, try not to let it get you down and instead take pride in your goal, knowing that your financial workout is actually strengthening you for a healthy, long term and financially fit future. A future you will be able to enjoy, free of the burden of debt. A future when you can spend your money not just on essentials but also on luxuries. Not only will you be able to spend money on luxuries but you’ll be able to enjoy spending money on them, safe in the knowledge that you can afford them and that you won’t be paying for them for decades to come.
Your fight against debt may seem hard and at times even unachievable but it isn’t, many have won the debt battle before you and many are winning it as we speak, returning to financial freedom.
What worthwhile things have you struggled to achieve in your life?
