the "why" - a few months ago, I saw the hashtag #1goodmoneything trend periodically. It inspired a group chat with a few friends to not just share a good money thing, but a good thing - self care, personal growth, whatever. It made me appreciate celebrating the small achievements and the wins of "continuous improvement." So, in that spirit, I'm going to share a few #goodthings each Wednesday, and I hope you do too!
#1goodmoneything: I was able to up my 401k contribution by another percent and I am on track to max it out this year.
#1goodselfcarething: I was able to take advantage of a local restaurant's lunch special and treat myself to a delicious (and inexpensive) lunch in the neighborhood! Got out for a walk in the sunshine, was able to work from a different space, eat something tasty, and support a local business. Total win.
#1goodmindfulnessthing: I made time to go to a Roman Catholic mass this weekend and a portion of one of the readings has stuck with me for reflection: "Remember not the former things, nor consider the things of old. Behold, I am doing a new thing; now it springs forth, do you not perceive it? I will make a way in the wilderness and rivers in the desert."
Friends, what is your #onegoodthing?
