I grew up with just my mom on my side. We used to run around, play hide and seek, go for a walk around the park, go shopping, cook, and more. We used to do almost everything together. But time flew so fast. I finished school and had to work overseas. I came back after two years to get married and had to be away again to raise a family of my own. We used to see each other often. Either she visits us, or we visit her. It’s a must that she comes on every special occasion – birthdays, anniversaries, and holidays.
Life just has so many twists and turns. You need to be creative and courageous to come out on the other side alive.
No one has an idea what life would bring, do you? But whatever life gives, we must be ready. When life throws a lemon at me, I’m thankful I got lemons. I can make some lemonade out of it, and if I have some more left, I can take tequila shots (just kidding).
When you become out of work, it’s not just the paycheck you worry about. Your health insurance will also be one of your biggest concerns. To have a health insurance is essential. No one wants to be sick nor planned to be. But maintaining health insurance protects you from the unexpected.
Are you someone who lives from paycheck to paycheck? Well, you’re not alone. A survey says that even those earning six digits admit that they also live paycheck to paycheck. They tend to spend their paycheck once it becomes available in their account. They don’t save, they get stressed, and yet reluctant to talk about it.
Life expectancy has doubled in number as compared to centuries ago which according to historians is just between 30 and 40 years. People can now enjoy life longer, and some are able to live past 80 years. One reason for this is the good quality of health care received by countries globally.
Raised by parents who never had the privilege of getting an education, my siblings and I were forced to finish a degree. My parents worked very hard just to be able to send us to the best universities. They believe that getting us educated, having a degree from a prestigious school will take us out of poverty. We will never live the life they lived.
