So Fast..Quarter of the Year Has Gone

Wow...just like that, 1st quarter of the year has already gone. But it's okay. I did want March to come fast though because of all the extra moolah we will get. So now I am entering April with some stashed away..hopefully. 

I tried not to be calculative but sometimes I can't help it. I guess it's part of my natural self because I am a sole breadwinner who does not earn much and I have three mouths, including myself to feed. So I have to be on track with how much money I have left. However, this can be a bad habit. Knowing how much is left is one thing. Being obssessive over it is another thing and today onwards, I will not be in such state of mind anymore.

At least I hope so.

 Anyhoo, I don't think I have spent the money carelessly. Of course, the maintenance allowance is used on the family first meaning, buy food for them, groceries for my mum's cooking for the next 1 week, and not forgetting myself too, part of my performance bonus was spent on entertainment such as our yearly karaoke session :) and makan session at Breeks. Oh, we also celebrated one of my friend's birthday too and we bought her a gift so the money was also used for the gift.

Overall, while at one point when I woke up in the middle of the night, freaking out how much has been spent, come to think of it, I didn't feel like I 'gamble' the money away. They were put to good use. Plus, I managed to stash some of it away for my studies and for savings.

So there isn't a need to panic I guess. I didn't spend on clothes as I still have many clothing pieces which I bought quite a lot last December. I did spend on make up buying a lipstick and an eyeshadow cream and make up tools like the Real techniques brushes which I used my salary for that.

Ha..enough justification. In other words, I shouldn't be so obssessed because there are still other things that I have yet to pay. I believe money will come in and I hope to leverage on my online shop because so far there isn't much success yet. However, I did post up an ad in facebook which got some attention and I also hope that it will translate to more business. I don't want to do it for the sake of money but to just share with others my love of making handmade stuffs especially cards. If continuing this love of mine will give me a big break soon, then I am happy but for now, I keep doing what I love :)

I believe I should focus my life on things that do not make me worry and deplete my brain cells for nothing. I should focus on achieving much success in life which does not necessarily translate into money. Success in taking care of my health, wealth, family, work and friends. I shouldn't be too harsh on myself. I should practise being more kind to myself because I already know that I am trying my best.

So here's some food for thought to begin April with.
