What will you do with your money? Are you saving it? Are you thinking about your future finances? What is something you want that you’re saving to purchase or thinking about saving for?
The biggest thing I want in my life, is to be a homeowner one day. Of course I want health, my family and friends, and those things that are wealthy too me which is not money. But, I’m sure we all have our dream purchase in mind. You may want a fancy car, a trip to an exotic place, or maybe something not as expensive, like a video game. My dream is to have my own home one day.
I want my own place to live and build a home with happiness as my parents have. Owning a home is very important too me also because of the financial freedoms that come along with it. It’s not only about having my own space and enjoying homeownership, but also having security as I get older. Most young people don’t worry so much about the future, because their priorities are much different right now. I do worry. The cost of living is going so high, but it seems that work salaries don’t budge. Spending is going up, but yearly raises, if we even get one, is not enough to compensate. Hopefully many my age have been paying attention to the economy. It’s a time to save. If we can be so lucky to live a few years with our parents and have a job, it would be wise to save as much as we can. This is my plan.
I think very little about buying some new clothes or a video game, because I’m taking my future seriously. I see more homeless people sleeping outside on the ground and on benches more than ever. It’s a scary thought thinking that could be me. I know how fortunate I am. This makes me set goals to make sure I can realize my dream. It can come true if I work hard and also work hard at saving whatever money I can.
Are you thinking of your financial needs going into the future?
