As a kid I grew up in a two bedroom apartment with my Mom, stepdad, brother sister and my stepsisters who lived there on and off. It was a hard life looking back at it now as an adult but I didn’t know much different because that’s what I grew up with! It wasn’t until I was 13 years old till where we lived in a house. I didn’t think any of us thought it was going to happen.
I never grew up in a house or was taught about saving, debt, credit and basically how to set myself up for a good life. I don’t blame my parents they were in survival mode them selves trying to keep a roof over our head and food on the table . I don’t think they where brought up that way either .
This last month going through my moms things and going through all my stuff, I was just thinking my mom had nothing to show for her hard work she did in her life ! Besides having good kids she didn’t have anything to show like a house or a paid off car she just had things !!! I thought I need to reverse that I want to show my children how to set them selfs up to a successful life. I want my children to grow up in a house !
Everything I went through in my childhood taught me in my life nothing comes easy and I need to work hard for it. I’m not afraid of hard work and I want to do this for my mom . It’s hard to figure out with no guidance but I will figure this out and set my children up to not make the mistakes I went through .
One thought on “Lessons I’m trying to figure out !”
Absolutely!! Mom didn’t have much but her heart was all we needed and we never thought about expensive things because we had each other.. Now as parents, we want to learn from what we didn’t know and pass it down to our children . Love you and love this
